If you are missing teeth, there are many options for you. Partial or full dentures, dental implants or a bridge.
A bridge is a permanent fix for patients with missing teeth. A bridge is fixed in place unlike the partial denture, which is removable.
Bridges are incredibly useful if you have very few missing teeth or the missing teeth is located in one side of your mouth.
It is similar to a partial denture in that it has a base and artificial teeth. The base of a dental bridge is normally made from a type of precious metal, while the artificial tooth placed on top is made from porcelain and styled to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth is not just a cosmetic idea, it helps prevent gum disease and other tooth decay. Gaps can place strain on teeth either side, which ‘lean’ into the vacant space, altering the biting together of the upper and lower teeth. This alteration can trigger off clenching and grinding, which will exacerbate the strain on these teeth.
