A dental bridge is a very popular, easily affordable, less risky and long lasting treatment for missing teeth. If you have lost a tooth due to trauma or any other incident, bridges are a must. Here are a few reasons why dental bridges are used to fill the gap between your teeth.
The Importance of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are a very good option when compared to dental implants or dentures. These procedures take a lot of time and money, but dental bridges are quite simple. Having a gap between your teeth is not really advisable as it will pave way for bacteria, plaque and other infections. The best way to fill that gap is to bridge it.
Procedure of Fixing Dental Bridges
Dental bridges will be fixed after an assessment by our dentist. There are different types of bridges to choose from and our experts at Green Dental will suggest the best one for you. After suggesting, a special bridge is fabricated by your dental technician.
In case of natural teeth, a traditional bridge is placed by fixing the crowns to the teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge will then be fixed surgically. The treatment does not take and you will have your perfect smile back in no time. You can start eating normally and bite things a few hours after the procedure.
For dental implants, bridges will be placed by inserting bio-compatible posts made of titanium in your jawbone. This is a complex procedure, when compared to fixing natural bridges.
