Alpha Dental Care offers dental bridges installation and restoration for the residents of Milton, Ontario.
Dental bridges serve to fill the gap that appeared due to the missing teeth. This is an excellent tooth replacement option. Fixed dental prosthesis can consist of several crowns that are cemented on the anchoring teeth. As a rule, artificial teeth are placed between the supporting teeth. If it’s impossible then implant is necessary beside the missing tooth. In this case, dental bridge is placed on an implant.
This is wrong to focus just on the aesthetic issues like most people do when this problem is discussed. There are other flaws as well that are seldom mentioned and they are no less important. When some teeth are missing, this can cause shifting of surrounding teeth to the “vacant place” and this brings to misalignment in the bite. Dental bridges are able to restore the ability to chew and bite in a right way because the forces of the bite should be distributed properly. A patient also regains the ability to speak properly. Finally, installation of the dental bridge provides cosmetic advantages.
Dental bridges vary depending on the type and material used.
Bridges can be made of different materials such as gold, silver amalgam, but the most common material used for them is porcelain because false teeth look natural then. They are the most durable when made of gold and metal alloys. In comparison with them, all-porcelain crown is not so strong. Nice alternative is porcelain fused to metal dental bridge, which is stronger compared to all-porcelain options.
Here are the following advantages of dental bridges:
Life expectancy of dental bridges varies from 5 to 15 years, in some cases it lasts even longer. The person should avoid hard foods and objects as well to prevent the damage of the bridges. The durability also depends upon your oral hygiene. With proper care, their working lifespan increases and you can enjoy your beautiful smile for years to come!
