A dental bridge is used to fill the gap left by a missing tooth. It is made of two or more crowns. It is held in place by the two adjacent teeth which are on the either side of the missing teeth. The two teeth hold the bridge while the false tooth fills the gap.
A missing tooth is a serious thing. Teeth are made to function together. When you lose a tooth, the adjacent teeth may drift into the empty space.Teeth present in the opposite jaw may also shift up or down. This can affect your bite and place more stress on your teeth, causing pain and damage.
Teeth that have drifted are also harder to clean which makes it a higher risk for tooth decay or gum disease.
When a tooth is missing, the surrounding bone may shrink. If that happens, it may change the way your face look. Dental bridge maintains the proper shape of bite and maintains proper shape of the face.
A fixed bridge means that your dentist uses existing natural teeth on both sides of your missing tooth to help hold your bridge in place. Placing a bridge will take more than one dental visit.
