Patients from Bath can bridge the tooth gap at Clifton Dental Studio

Dental bridges are false teeth which are attached onto neighbouring teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. Patients from Bath frequently have this procedure done to improve their smile and appearance, the shape of your face and your speech. Even the rate of gum disease and tooth decay can be improved as it reduces the volume of food which accumulates in the gap. A dental bridge essentially consists of a false tooth made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. There are three main types of bridge available. A traditional fixed bridge is fused between two porcelain crowns which are anchored onto neighbouring teeth or implants. This is usually made from ceramics or porcelain fused to metal. These are fixed and cannot be removed. The second type is a resin-bonded bridge which is used when the gap to be filled is in between the front teeth, or when the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are strong and healthy without large fillings. The false tooth is made of plastic and is fused to metal bands that are bonded to the adjacent teeth using resin. Thirdly, you can get cantilever bridges which are used when there are teeth present on only one side of the space. In this case the false tooth is anchored to one or more adjacent teeth on one side. The procedure is usually done in two appointments. At the first visit an impression is made and a temporary bridge is fitted. At the second visit, the custom-made bridge is placed, adjusted and then cemented into position. One of the good things about dental bridges is that they are quite durable, lasting between 10 and 15 years on average, provided that you maintain good dental habits, of course!
