Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are oral prosthetics that act as a bridge between one or more missing teeth. They are used to support implants and bridge the gap between teeth. Dental bridges are fixed to both sides of the teeth with the help of dental crowns.
In modern dentistry, dental bridges are made of high-quality advanced material. They are designed to look natural and resemble natural teeth. The quality of bridges has drastically improved over the last few years, but this change is difficult to detect.
Bridges can also be customized to the color of your teeth. At Arlington, bridges and crowns are placed together to blend in naturally with no color discrepancy.
Dental bridges take support from the adjacent teeth to fill the gaps between teeth. At Arlington Dental Associates, we guide our patients about the importance of dental bridges and whether or not they are the right candidate for it.

Why Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are one of many other options available to replace a missing tooth. Why your dentist may recommend dental bridges depends on the condition of your teeth.
Arlington Dental Associates recommends dental bridges to patients with weak adjacent teeth. They help strengthen weak teeth. Similarly, misaligned or misshapen teeth can also benefit from the support of a dental bridge.
These bridges also support the treatment of dental implants. For dental implants to work effectively, sufficient and healthy bone is required. Many times, there is not enough bone to support dental implants. To remedy this problem dentists, take help from bridges.

Replace Missing Teeth

Avoiding treatment for missing teeth can cause long-term damage to your oral health. Over time, you lose the strength of many teeth and the ability to enjoy food with ease. Because of the gaps, the adjacent teeth begin to drift apart. This inhibits your ability to chew and bite effectively. And misalignment causes oral health problems and leads to anxiety and headaches.
Face shrinking, decay, and periodontal disease are other common problems that occur after you lose one or more teeth. Fortunately, dental bridges prevent the mouth and jaw from shrinking by maintaining the strength of your jaws.
