Fill in the Gaps With Advanced Treatment
If your tooth cannot be saved with a filling or crown but you still want a fully functional tooth, our skilled cosmetic dentists may advise getting a dental bridge in York, SC. A bridge also stops your remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment, which can result in further undesirable dental issues. A dental bridge will also make it easier for you to chew and speak normally and can fill in the space left by a missing tooth.
What Is a Bridge?
When one or more teeth are missing, a bridge, also known as a “permanent partial denture,” “bridges” the gap with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from porcelain, metal alloys, gold, or a combination of these materials to match your natural teeth. The teeth on either side of a fixed bridge serve as its support. Unlike a removable bridge, a permanent bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
Typically, strong dental crowns are used to replace one or more teeth with dental bridges. If a dental bridge is used to replace one missing tooth, it will also have two typical hollow dental crowns on either side of the replacement tooth (crown). Your dental bridge may even be supported by dental implants.
Dental Bridge Care
We urge you to treat your bridge the same way you would your natural teeth after it has been installed. In general, regular brushing and flossing are the only maintenance requirements. If you have any pain after your bridge is in place, please contact our office.
