A dental bridge is a false tooth which is fused between two porcelain crowns in order to replace a missing tooth. Each bridge is custom made to fill in the space. If spaces are left unfilled the surrounding teeth are liable to drift out of position. Furthermore, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.
¬ Dental bridges are natural in appearance.
¬ They usually require only two visits to your dentist.
¬ Dental bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease.
¬ They can help to correct some bite issues + improve your speech.
¬ With good oral hygiene, your fixed bridge can last more that ten years.
Disadvantages: ¬ Sensitive teeth to extreme temperatures for few weeks.
¬ Infected bacteria on teeth and gums due to insufficient oral hygiene.
