Dental bridges are used by dentists to replace missing teeth. Having a terrific smile is the first thing that people will notice about you. If you have dental problems, it can be both painful and embarrassing. It can affect each and everything that you do. Sometimes the only option to relieve the pain is to have the tooth pulled. This will leave you with a gaping hole in your mouth where the tooth used to be, and no one wants to walk around with missing teeth. Even if the tooth is in the back of the mouth, it may be uncomfortable to chew, so getting it repaired can improve your situations.
Dental bridges are called such because they are bridged between two healthy teeth. Generally, the false tooth is secured to a plate that sits within the mouth, the plate is then secured with a steel hook on either side to a healthy tooth, typically the kind that is made in this way can be removed from the mouth. In some cases the bridge is done without a plate, it is cemented right to the two healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth.
Types of dental bridges.
There are two kinds of bridges, a permanent type, and a removable type. The permanent type is typically cemented into place with tooth bond. The movable type could be removed. The removable kind can be taken in and out of the mouth to be cleaned. From time to time the movable type is referred to as a flipper or a partial plate.
Dental bridges are much more favorable than full dental prostheses. You should try to save each and every natural tooth that you could. A lot of folks do not realize how important it’s to hang on to as many teeth of their own. Dental bridges make it possible.
No matter how good dentures are, they’re simply not as cozy as your teeth are. Most wearers of dental prostheses will agree that they are always aware that they are wearing dentures. They slip, they may be uncomfortable, and they prevent the wearer from eating certain foods.
Having a great smile is important, but so is being able to eat what you want without fear. Dental bridges can bridge the gap so that you might keep as many of your teeth as possible.
