If you have missing pearly whites in your smile, don’t let the gaps steal your smile confidence. With the help of a dental bridge, you can once again smile with confidence. There are several kinds of bridges available based on your specific dental needs. Today our Comfort Dental Excellence team is going to talk a little bit about fixed dental bridges for our patients in Spring, Texas, who want to replace missing teeth.
A fixed bridge is an excellent choice for missing teeth to bridge the smile gap. With a dental bridge, you will be able to speak and chew normally, prevent remaining teeth from shifting position, and maintain your facial features. By replacing lost teeth and the gaps left behind, a fixed bridge distributes the forces in your bite correctly.
How does having a bridge work?
1-A fixed dental bridge helps those who have lost their pearly whites but have enough jawbone to support an implant.
2-Our dentist fixes the bridge by cementing it or screwing it into the bone.
3-Fixed bridges are typically made of porcelain fused to metal.
4-With a fixed dental bridge your teeth emerge from the gums so you won’t have anything going over your gums or touching the palate.
5-Maintaining your bridge is simple: take good care of your remaining teeth and gums through daily cleaning and bi-annual professional cleanings and exams. With proper care, your bridge may last longer than ten years.
