Dental Bridges Mississauga
What Is A Dental Bridge?Dental Bridges are a custom-made, fixed or non-removable prosthesis used to restore gaps and replace one or more missing teeth. They are permanently bonded in place to provide a long-term solution for missing teeth
Purposes of Dental Bridges
- Replacing missing teeth
- Preventing movement of other teeth
- Fixing the aesthetics of your smile
- Full mouth rehabilitation
- Dental Implant therapy
How is a Dental Bridge prepared?
We prepare the abutments for crowns when preparing teeth for a bridge, just as described in crowns. After taking an imprint of the prepared teeth, we place a temporary bridge or crowns to protect the teeth and maintain their positions. We then send the imprint to a dental laboratory for bridge fabrication.On the next visit, we fit the bridge for a satisfactory fit and secure it in place.
Do you really need to replace a missing tooth?
?If you have missing teeth, it's important to consider replacing them as soon as possible. The surrounding teeth and those on the opposite arch can begin to shift out of place, leading to several oral health issues such as:
- Increased risk of tooth decay
- Uneven wear and bite force
- Impact on the feel of your bite and appearance of your smile
