Dental bridge: the fastest solution to missing teeth
Do you want to replace your missing tooth / teeth quickly? The solution is a dental bridge!
It is recommended to use a bridge to replace one or more teeth in order to eliminate the aesthetic problems caused by the deficiency and to restore the function of chewing and speaking.
The bridge consists of a crown glued to a support pillar, which can be a natural tooth or an implant. The gap is then filled with artificial tooth / teeth, this part is the so-called pontic.
Fortunately, there are now several ways to replace lost, extracted teeth:
Dental bridge (and its supporting pillar, the dental crown)
Partially removable – or full removable denture
In order to determine which would be the best alternative for you, you will definitely need a consultation with our dental expert. During our consultation we will also assess your current oral health status.
Why is it important to eliminate tooth loss?
Due to tooth loss:
Below the deficient area the bone tissue can start to atrophy and weaken
The unprotected part can become inflamed more easily
Adjacent teeth can move in place of the missing tooth
Your gums may be more vulnerable
Chewing will be less effective
One-sided chewing can also occur, putting strain on the joints of the jaw
