Clifton Dental explains about Dental Bridges in Bath

Cosmetic dentistry has pretty much covered all bases when it comes to picking you up by the scruff of the neck and getting you back smiling again, and this also goes for tooth loss. You no longer have to suffer unsightly gaps any more, which can also lead to more problems later on as the other teeth start to shift towards the hole. So if you want to avoid these complications, you should contact Clifton Dental of Bristol, who cover the Bath area, and discuss about the option of having a dental bridge fitted. Bridges have been around for decades now, so they have a proven track record with tooth loss, however, they would normally last around 15 years that was until they started to be used along with mini-implants. Sometimes the bridge can take the shape of a single crown that is bonded to the adjacent tooth/teeth by wires and then coated with a resin, but the most popular bridge is one that spans a gap of one or more teeth, more commonly known as the Maryland Bridge. The new tooth/teeth will be bonded between two crowns and then cemented onto the remaining teeth that sit either side of the gap. Over a span of two lost teeth though, the bridge can become weak in the middle, but by using an implant, the bridge anchors in the centre against the gums and becomes more rigid and stronger. An implant can also anchor this type of bridge at the end of a line where there are no teeth. The only problem that comes with having a bridge fitted is cleaning them, so for the first few weeks, you needs to practise this until you get it right.
