Clifton Dental explains Dental bridges in Bath

The loss of your teeth, regardless of the cause, can be a very traumatic experience for everyone. It can result in a severe loss of self-confidence, it may change the way you pronounce words, cause difficulties when chewing and even cause the teeth on either side of the gap to lean towards each other due to severe strain. However, there is a solution. Dental bridges are a form of false tooth that can be used to fill in any gaps left by lost teeth. Unlike dentures, bridges are a permanent form of replacement as your dentist will anchor the bridge to your other teeth using either a resin or cement. Dental bridges can be fitted by your local dentist in Bath. On your first visit, your dentist will prepare for the fitting of your bridges by creating space in the mouth for the new crown. In addition, a mould of your teeth will be taken, form which your bridge will be produced. On your second visit, your dentist will fit your bridge into your mouth and adjust it slightly until they are happy with the bite. However, this will not be a permanent fixture; most dentists like to leave you bridge in temporarily for a few weeks, in order to see if you are comfortable with the fit. Once you are happy, they will attach the bridge permanently. Once your bridge has been fitted, your oral hygiene must be stepped up a notch. Even with the best bridges, you will still find gaps around your tooth, and so will bacteria. Cleaning and flossing is essential to maintain your bridge and to avoid any further decay or the development of gum disease. If you dental bridge is properly cleaned and taken care of, it should last for 10-15 years- you can get all the information about bridges you need from Clifton Dental of Bristol.
