What You Should Know About Dental Bridges
If you or someone in your family is missing teeth, it’s important to discuss with your dentist what choices you have to resolve the issue. Left untreated, the gap left behind from a missing tooth will cause other surrounding teeth to shift into a different position in order to fill the gap. This can lead to a variety of other problems, including a poorly aligned bite.
Dental bridges are one way to resolve the issue of missing teeth. Although there are different types of bridges, the most common type is made from a porcelain crown that is mounted onto a metal frame. The crown fills in where the tooth is missing, and the frame sits over existing adjacent teeth. This type of dental bridge can usually be removed by the patient for cleaning. Another type of bridge is one that is “fixed,” or not removable. You can find out which option is best for you by discussing the alternatives with Dr. Robertson.
Dental bridges are extremely strong and durable. However, as it true with almost any other type of dental appliance, they may need to be replaced or repaired after several years.
