What is a dental bridge?
A 'dental bridge' is a denture used to replace missing teeth. Our teeth are precious and should be looked after, but from time to time it can be hard to avoid loosing a tooth, for a range of reasons. If you do loose a tooth, there’s no point in shying away from the world – having a dental bridge fitted allows you to retain your smile.
Dental bridges are great for self-confidence, they can also help you when it comes to chewing food and speaking. If you loose a tooth for any reason, there’s no need to despair – a dental bridge could be the solution to your problems!
What are the main benefits of having a dental bridge fitted?
- You can restore your smile even after tooth loss.
- Less pressure is put on surrounding teeth.
- Eating and speaking can be easier with a dental bridge.
- A dental bridge can lead to better oral health (compared to not having a bridge).
After having a tooth removed for any reason, you may have to wait up to six months before you can have a dental bridge fitted. Most tooth extractions cause the gums to become inflamed - so you may need to wait until your gums have heeled properly before a dentist can consult with you on having a dental bridge designed and fitted.
