We at Strobel Dentistry know how important your smile is and how to protect it and preserve it for a lifetime. For your health and appearance to be equally valued, you must rely upon an experienced team in general dentistry, dental surgery, and cosmetic dentistry when getting much-needed services, such as a bridge to fill in spaces where you've lost teeth.
WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
Bridges are dental devices that replace missing natural teeth with artificial teeth made of resin or porcelain. They are often referred to as fillers, false teeth, or partial dentures. They are attached to crowns that anchor them to natural teeth. A crown may cover two or more teeth to secure the bridge and hold it in place properly.
CHOOSING A DENTAL BRIDGE
It is recommended that fixed bridges be replaced every ten years, although, with proper aftercare, some bridges may last longer. Despite the fact that fixed bridges can be replaced quite frequently, for some people, they can still be an effective solution. Dental crowns could help to protect and preserve those abutment teeth if they are already decayed and have lost some of their original structure.
MORE THAN A DENTAL BAND-AID
You may need a dental bridge to maintain your oral health or you may wish to consider it as an elective procedure. A dental bridge does more than restore your smile; it also strengthens your mouth function.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL BRIDGES ARE:
- Improves the quality of your speech
- Gives you the ability to chew properly
- Helps you maintain a healthy facial shape
- Evens out your bite
- Assists in keeping the remaining teeth in place
