The Facts to Know About Dental Bridges

Posted .

If you are interested in improving your smile and oral health with a dental bridge, then our dentist, Dr. Chad Howe, is happy to tell you all about the restoration. The more you know about dental bridges, the better chance you have of making the best decision for your smile. So, to tell you more, he is happy to share some dental bridge facts:

-Dental bridges can replace your missing tooth, improve the health and function of your smile, give you the ability to speak and chew, maintain the shape of our face, give you the force you need in your bite, and more.

-There are three different dental bridges that can restore your smile. The most generally used bridge is the traditional bridge. Other bridge options include the Cantilever bridges and Maryland bonded bridges.

-Dental bridges are made specifically for the patient. Your dentist will send your measurements to dental lab technicians and they will craft your bridge in their lab to the best of their abilities.

-Dental bridges can be anchored in place by the natural teeth on both sides of the gap or by dental implants.

-Dental bridges can last 15 years and even longer if you take good care of them by keeping up with oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly.
