Replace Lost Teeth And Restore Confidence With Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge New York NY

When an individual has missing teeth, the gaps left by those teeth eventually cause remaining teeth to shift out of place. While this leads to misalignment concerns, missing teeth can also result in periodontal gum disease and intense jaw pain and/or TMJ disorders. What’s more, when teeth are missing, individuals are ashamed of their smile and they may cover their mouth when they laugh. Fortunately, a growing number of individuals are able to replace their lost teeth and restore their confidence with dental bridges.

Dental bridges offer both functional and aesthetic correction, as explained by News Medical. In regards to function, bridges enable a patient to eat normally, as there’s no longer a gap where teeth were missing. Similarly, patients can speak easily and more clearly, though the exact placement of the tongue with the new restoration may take some getting used to. In terms of appearance, a dental bridge can be closely matched to a patient’s natural tooth color. In addition, as the bridge fills in gaps left by missing teeth, an individual’s face may appear fuller and more youthful. Because a dental bridge maintains a person’s facial structure, it also reduces the risk of bone loss in the jaw, while preventing original teeth from moving and shifting. Finally, dental bridges are low maintenance restorations that do not require removal in order to clean.

Because each case of missing teeth is unique, however, there are various types of dental bridges. A traditional fixed bridge creates a filler tooth that is anchored by dental crowns that have been placed on healthy teeth on either side of the gap in the mouth. However, the crowned teeth must be healthy in order to serve as support for the bridge. When there are no teeth on one side of the missing tooth, a bridge can still be adequately supported by one crowned tooth. This type of bridge is called a Cantilever Bridge. A resin-bonded bridge (Maryland Bonded Bridge) is primarily used to replace missing front teeth. The replacement tooth or teeth is fixed to adjacent healthy teeth with a type of porcelain wing that is attached behind the front adjacent teeth. With this type of bridge, there is no need to crown adjacent teeth, making it a more conservative restoration.
