About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is a dental appliance which is used to replace missing teeth and restore the appearance and function of a smile. Dental bridges are designed to look natural and blend with your smile, making your treatment virtually unnoticeable. Dental bridges are held into place using dental crowns that are placed on healthy, natural teeth or dental implants. During your examination, our dentist will discuss your various options and potential outcomes.
Why Dental Bridges?
At Bluebonnet Dental, we are big believers in preemptive dental care. However, we understand that situations do arise where restorations are necessary. When a tooth is missing, it actually impacts the health and function of the rest of your smile. Once a tooth is extracted or knocked-out, the body begins to demineralize the area, leading to bone loss, loose teeth, tooth shifting, and even potential tooth loss. A dental bridge can help to keep the rest of your smile in the proper place, keeping it healthier and more functional.
Getting A Dental Bridge Treatment
Once you’ve been approved as a candidate for a dental bridge, your dentist will begin to plan your new smile, ensuring that the color, size, and shape of your bridge will match with your natural smile. Depending upon whether you need implants and crowns or just crowns, those will need to be placed prior to the bridge. Once fabricated, the dental bridge is then attached to the dental crowns, allowing it to be secured into place.
Dental Bridge Aftercare
In order for your dental bridge to function properly and the rest of your smile to remain healthy, it is recommended that you brush your smile and dental bridge at least twice a day. You should also be flossing and using a water flosser to clean your smile and dental appliance.
