What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is the most traditional way to replace a missing tooth. It can be a great option when:
The teeth surrounding the gap may need work in the future or have large fillings
The tooth has been missing for a long time which has led to bone loss, creating a less than ideal environment for an implant.
How long do dental bridges last?
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Maintaining a consistent and effective oral hygiene routine is the best way to keep your bridge in optimum shape. Choosing a healthy diet is also beneficial not only for the care of your bridges or crowns, but for your entire mouth. Avoid chewing on hard foods or substances like ice as they can damage crowns and bridges just as they can your natural teeth.
