About Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are used to fill the gap left by missing teeth. Your dentist at Affordable Dentist Near Me will customize false teeth for your teeth arch that can be latched on to implants or existing teeth. They are designed to appear and function like normal teeth.
Being permanent fixtures, you cannot remove bridges at will. They require abutments, if you have implants, or anchor teeth that will be shaped by your dentist in order to make them support bridges. Leaving the gaps as is, you can develop serious problems like an uneven bite, TMJ disorders which happen mainly because of imbalanced chewing, and gum diseases if the gap gets infected.
Fabricating dental bridges to your customized specifications will take several days to finish. You will be provided with a temporary appliance to protect the area. Once the permanent bridge is complete, it will be attached to the implant or anchor teeth using special cement to ensure it does not get dislodged. You must take care of your bridge with regular checkups with us, brushing and flossing daily, and avoiding hard foods.
