Used to cover spaces left by missing tooth or teeth, bridges are a fixed prosthetic device. The bridge is not like the removable devices such as dentures which can be taken out for cleaning, but they are rather cemented onto existing teeth.
If you require tooth bridges, then you need to select the best place for carrying out this treatment. With The Church Street Dental Practice surgery, it is not all about strengthening a damaged tooth, but we make sure that these bridges improve your tooth’s appearance and alignment.
If you have missing teeth, then the appearance is not the only reason to have it replaced. Another important reason is that the gap left by the missing teeth will be putting extra strain on the teeth on either side. The missing teeth will also affect your bite as it will shape the way your upper and lower teeth bite together. Another reason why you should seriously consider a dental bridge is that food may get packed in the gap. This will then eventually lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
