A dental bridge can bridge a gap in the mouth created when teeth are missing. It can replace one or two missing teeth in a row to prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting. If a missing tooth or teeth are changing the shape and volume of your face, affecting your ability to eat or chew, or causing stress when biting, a dentist may recommend a dental bridge to alleviate your problems and restore natural-looking and functional teeth. It will support the remaining teeth from moving or loosening.
How Do I Take Care of My Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are made from molds and impressions of your teeth and can be maintained like natural teeth. They will require brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and cleaning underneath the bridge to ensure they last the longest possible time. Patients with dental bridges will also require routine checkups from their dentist. To improve the longevity of dental bridges, you should limit the number of sugary drinks and food you consume.
