Enjoy the lifelong benefits of a complete smile with Dental Bridges for missing teeth
Believe it or not, missing teeth can affect your life in ways you never would have imagined. Apart from dampening your smile, that tooth gap can limit what you eat and cause misalignment of other remaining teeth. And that’s not all. A tooth gap also increases the chances of oral infection and can result in bone loss, leading to a sunken-in facial appearance. Luckily, you can minimize the effects of tooth loss on your oral health by considering dental bridges from Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario.
What is a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are like partial dentures — they can replace one, two, or several missing teeth in a row. A bridge contains a set of prosthetic teeth anchored in place with dental crowns installed on the remaining teeth neighbouring the gap. If you don’t have healthy teeth remaining, dental implants can be installed to hold your bridge in place.
After bridge installation, your ability to speak and eat will be improved, and you will be able to smile confidently once more. Besides, our fixed porcelain bridges blend well with natural teeth — no one will be able to tell the difference!
The dental bridge procedure
The process of dental bridge installation is relatively painless and straightforward. Dr. Rina Kotecha first prepares your teeth on either side of the gap by filing down and reshaping them to install dental crowns. Next, we take your bite impressions and send the images to a dental lab to create your custom restoration. You shouldn’t experience any pain during treatment as we numb your gums to minimize discomfort.
In your second appointment, we will cement your permanent bridge in place. Prior to that, we will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your new restoration feels as natural and comfortable as possible.
Benefits of dental bridges
Whether you have lost your teeth through injury or decay, dental bridges are an excellent solution to replace your missing teeth. Bridges:
- Restore your speech and chewing ability
- Prevent adjacent teeth from shifting
- Restore your self-esteem and confidence
- Maintain your natural facial structure
It would be ideal if we could maintain our permanent teeth for life. But sometimes, life throws curveballs at you and conditions such as periodontal disease and decay may cause tooth loss. Luckily, you don’t have to live with that noticeable tooth gap for the rest of your life. By dialling (905) 455-9262, you can get high-quality dental bridges from Dentistry On 10 to replace your missing teeth.
