Cause and Impact of Teeth Issue:

When you have gum diseases and/or un-restorable teeth, extraction may be indicated. Missing teeth can cause a number of subsequent problems. First, you will have a hard time chewing on that side, then there will be some positional changes of both adjacent teeth and opposing teeth. Accordingly, dental substitution is essential to prevent the above-mentioned problems from occurring.

Dental Bridge:

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthesis used to replace one (or several) missing tooth by attaching an artificial tooth to adjacent natural teeth (abutment) or implants. The materials can vary from porcelain-fused-to-metal, metal alloys to all-ceramic.

Steps for Dental Bridges:

  1. Thorough examination. (Root canal will have to be completed first if necessary).
  2. Tooth preparation, impression and temporization with temporary bridge.
  3. Bridge try-in and delivery on the second visit.

Cleaning Advice for Bridges:

Dental bridges are fixed on the teeth; therefore, they cannot be removed for cleaning purposes. A special floss can be used regularly to clean underneath the prostheses by threading in-and-out under the artificial tooth (or teeth). Normal flossing can still be done between the abutment teeth and their adjacent natural teeth. This should be done on a regular basis in order to keep good oral hygiene as well as to prevent gum diseases and decay underneath the prostheses from happening subsequently.
