Why Do A Bridge For Tooth Replacement?
Dental bridges are an exceptionally effective yet inexpensive solution to replacing missing teeth. When you engage expert dentists from Mallard Lane Dental about your missing teeth, you can have the solution professionally delivered with a perfect bridge. In the end, you will have your smile and biting impact restored.
Literally, a dental bridge is designed to close that gap between your teeth, just like a roadway bridge does. Bridges come in different sizes, so they can fit different size gaps depending on how many teeth you need replaced. You can have, for example, a 3, 4, or even 5-unit dental bridge depending on how many teeth you are missing. The 3-unit bridge may be slightly different from the others as it has a crown on both ends and a “pontic” or false tooth in the middle.
Benefits of Dental Bridges Include:
- Restoration of smiles and confidence.
- Distribution of force when taking a bite.
- Helping to keep existing teeth in the right place.
- Helping one to speak and chew properly.
Types of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are made using a variety of materials including porcelain, alloy, and gold, among other. There are three main types of bridges.
This type uses a false tooth or “pontic” which is placed between two dental crowns that are usually placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap being filled. The two crowns are used for providing more stability and strength for the bridge.
This type of dental bridge is used when there is only one adjacent tooth next to the gap being filled. In such a case, a “pontic” is held by one dental crown only with the crown being attached to the available tooth.
A Maryland bridge is an alternative to the traditional one. It uses a metallic or porcelain framework that is bonded to the backside of the teeth adjacent to the gap that is to be filled.
