Perhaps you were playing sports and knocked out a tooth. Or your tooth got infected and you had an extraction. Whatever the reason for your tooth’s absence, you’ve probably already noticed its negative implications. The fact of the matter is that you need a replacement as quickly as possible. And you want that replacement to be simple but high quality. Dental implant surgery seems like too much work and you are adverse to the thought of a removable tooth. Many other people feel the same and that’s why they choose the perfect medium between comfortable installments and fantastic function: a dental bridge.
A dental bridge is rather ideal for bridging the gap in your mouth. This appliance is composed of two crowns bordering the gap and an artificial tooth called a pontic to fit over the breach. This bridge can be made and installed permanently in your mouth in just two dental visits.
A bridge can upgrade the appearance of your smile as well as your ability to chew competently or speak clearly. It will help maintain the shape of your face, allocate the forces of your bite correctly and prevent other teeth from shifting out of place. This apparatus can last anywhere from five to ten years or even longer with good care. You can care for your bridge in the same fashion that you care for your natural teeth – by brushing twice a day and flossing every evening.
