Dental bridges are used to literally bridge a gap that’s been made by a missing tooth. Usually, bridges consist of a false tooth attached with dental crowns at its sides for support. The false teeth are called pontics and the existing teeth are called abutment teeth. Just like any replacement teeth, these dental prosthetics are a great option to restore a smile and keep the teeth from developing malocclusion issues.
Dental bridges application process
Your London dentist recommends this dental appliance especially if you still have healthy teeth at each side of the gap. The tooth-shaped framework or the crowns are efficient in supporting the false tooth and making it look natural and matching to the rest of the teeth.
If you’re considering for dental bridges, its process may involve two visits to the office. The initial appointment would include your dental examination and preparation of your abutment teeth. To prepare the teeth, your dentist will recontour and reshape it to make room for the crowns. After that, your London dentist will take your teeth impression and send the model for the fabrication of your bridges.
Since it may take weeks before the bridges are made, your dentist will place temporary ones on your prepared teeth. Exposing it without cover will risk it to sensitivity or infection. It will be removed once the permanent bridges are done. Then, you return to the clinic for its application. The London dentist will then check on the fitting of your new bridges and make sure that they’re right and comfortable on you. After ensuring its fit, he will permanently cement it in place.
