What Is the Dental Bridge Procedure?
The purpose of dental bridges is to close the space created between missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — which are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. The pontics are made from gold or porcelain or a combination of these materials. The ultimate goal of dental bridges is to restore the basic functions in your mouth and protect you from harmful diseases.
Other common benefits of a dental bridge procedure include:
- Restore the ability to talk and chew like normal
- Maintain facial structure
- Properly balance your bite
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
Dental Bridge After-Care
Keeping a regular cleaning schedule with our dentist will help to diagnose problems at an early stage, however, the success of your bridge is dependent on how strong and healthy your teeth remain. That’s why we encourage and recommend our patients to follow and practice good oral hygiene. Flossing and brushing your teeth twice daily and using the correct toothbrush and mouthwash can all play an important factor on the maintenance of your teeth. The last thing we want is for our patients to experience pain, or worse, infection.
