Dental Bridge Pelham NH
A dental bridge is a great solution to replace adjacent missing teeth. The bridge is made of two dental crowns and a pontic (false) tooth in the middle. Dental bridges can use existing teeth to adhere or dental implants. More patients choose dental bridges over partial dentures due to its permanency. Dental bridges are permanently fixed into the mouth. This offers convenience for those that prefer a low maintenance teeth replacement option.
Why should I consider teeth replacement?
Teeth replacement is important for your oral health. Missing teeth cause unnatural teeth shifting and it increases the chances of decay, periodontal disease, and additional tooth loss. Patients are more likely avoid additional dental work by replacing missing teeth as soon as possible.
What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration for adjacent missing teeth. Patients can use existing teeth or dental implants to successfully attach the bridge.
How are dental bridges attached to existing teeth?
The dentist will shape the two existing teeth that will receive the bridge. Next, the dental bridge is custom-made to fit comfortably and appear natural.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Similar to other dental procedures like crowns and implants, bridges need proper dental care. Good dental hygiene allows the dental bridge to last up to 15 years. We recommend brushing twice a day and flossing daily. This maintains healthy gums and teeth. Also, avoid biting on hard food and objects. It can damage or loosen the bridge. If this happens, contact us right away. The bridge needs to be fixed quickly to avoid an infection.
