Why Choose Brush Dental For Dental Bridges? 

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges consist of two dental crowns with one or more ceramic teeth in the middle, forming a kind of “bridge” over the area where you’re missing teeth. Via this method, you can replace one or more teeth you’re missing provided that they’re right next to each other.

There are several methods of replacing teeth, and dental bridges are well-suited to replacing one or two teeth that are right next to each other, and that are surrounded by pretty stable teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges

What’s described above is the most typical kind of dental bridge, but there are a variety of them that suit different patient’s needs. We’ll talk to you about what kind of dental bridges are available to you at a consultation, and help you choose between them.

Traditional Dental Bridges

Traditional dental bridges are adhered to the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile. They are fairly easy to adhere, do not require surgery, and entail virtually no aftercare. This makes them a great opportunity to quickly and simply replace teeth, especially if your jawbone isn’t well-suited to dental implants.

Implant Bridges

Dental implants are small metal posts that are placed into the jawbone. After healing has finished, this provides you with incredibly powerful bite strength.

Implant bridges are exactly what they sound like—a dental bridge, consisting of several porcelain teeth in a row, attached to two or more dental implants.

They’re excellent for patients who aren’t confident in the stability of their teeth, or who want a stronger bite than what dental bridges can offer.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

If you’re missing even one of your teeth, it can cause serious problems. Not only can it seriously impact your smile, but it can also affect your oral health. You may have greater difficulty eating, meaning that you’re likely getting substantially less nutrients from your food than you might otherwise.

Moreover, even missing a single tooth can cause surrounding teeth to fall out of alignment. By using a dental bridge, you can finally get your smile back. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call today!

How Many Teeth Can I Replace with a Dental Bridge?

A traditional fixed bridge can treat one or more missing teeth in a row. However, they are most often recommended to treat no more than three teeth. Although it’s possible to replace more, longer restorations can put too much strain on your abutment teeth and can be less stable. If you have several lost teeth, your dentist may recommend an implant-supported bridge. One to two dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone to anchor your bridge in place.

Is a Dental Implant Cheaper Than a Bridge?

A dental implant can cost more initially than a traditional bridge, but they are the most cost-effective overall. An implant replaces the entire tooth structure from the root up, whereas the traditional method only treats the portion above the gum line. Not only does this create the next best thing to your real teeth, but it also stops bone loss caused by tooth loss. The implant posts stimulate your jawbone to keep it strong and healthy. You’ll avoid future dental expenses by improving your oral health. With over a 95% success rate and a lifespan of 30 years or more, you’ll never have to budget for replacements. Dental implants will save you money down the road while benefiting from a lifelong solution.

How Long Does a Dental Bridge Last?

A traditional fixed bridge can last for a decade or longer before needing to be replaced, but many factors affect the life expectancy. Your dentist in Royse City will explain how to get the most from your restoration, like committing to good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for 2 minutes and floss every night. Moderate hard and sticky foods to protect your bridge from damage. It’s also best to limit sugars and starches to prevent tooth decay. Besides caring for your smile at home, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Your dentist will keep your teeth and gums healthy to ensure your dental bridge thrives for years.
