What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is an appliance designed to fill the gaps caused by missing teeth with a synthetic replacement. These synthetic teeth are made of tooth-colored composite resin and are attached either to abutment teeth or directly into the jawbone. Typically, the result is a permanent solution and is also durable and functional.
Losing permanent teeth is no laughing matter. While having one tooth missing isn’t usually an issue, the situation becomes more serious as more are lost. Over time, patients who are missing teeth become more susceptible to oral health conditions like gum disease and tooth decay. The jawbone also starts to thin because it is no longer being utilized or given pressure by the tooth. In severe cases, patients who are missing multiple teeth even experience facial collapse.
A bridge can prevent these numerous problems by completing the smile and giving you a full set of functional teeth. Other benefits include:
- Extremely durable and long-lasting
- Easy to clean as composite resin isn't prone to tooth decay
- Improved self-confidence
- Improved functioning to eat and chew
