Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges provide various advantages, including improving your appearance, pronunciation, and speech, enhancing the ability to chew, and increasing bite force for better dental health and a boost in self-confidence.
Bridges do not require replacement like dentures or other tooth replacement treatments since they are permanent. They assist in preserving the facial structure and preventing movement of the remaining teeth.
Dental bridges can also lower the likelihood of developing gum disease and other dental issues.
The placement of dental bridges involves fitting two crowns on the teeth next to the empty space and affixing a pontic, an artificial tooth, to them. The pontic is bonded between the crowns, which serve as the bridge’s foundations.
Powerful dental glue is used to attach the bridge to the teeth. The anchoring teeth are prepped, and imprints of the teeth are made at the initial appointment.
While the final bridge is being created, a temporary bridge is positioned to safeguard the neighboring teeth and gums. The final bridge is installed and modified at the second session to provide a secure fit and great functionality.
People usually choose materials like gold or zirconia for bridges. Porcelain is more commonly used for the onlay. It is important to maintain your oral hygiene to make sure that your bridges last long.
