Treatment of a dental bridge involves creating multiple crowns. The crowns are attached to original teeth on the either side.
Treatment of a dental bridge involves creating multiple crowns combined. The crowns are attached to the original teeth on either side. Because a complete set of teeth is compatible with each other, when a tooth is lost, the structure and appearance of surrounding teeth are affected over time. For example, if a tooth is missing in the lower jaw, the corresponding upper tooth may tend to fall. Healthy teeth adjacent to the missing one may lean towards the cavity impairing the patient's ability to chew properly. In time this causes major distortions in the configuration of the teeth. Dental bridges are very important to maintain structural integrity in the mouth.
HOW DENTAL BRIDGE MAINTENANCE IS MADE?
Dental bridges are easy to maintain. Daily oral care such as brushing and flossing routine is enough.
IN WHICH SITUATIONS IS A DENTAL BRIDGE NECESSARY?
- For teeth with excessive decay

- For patients with chewing disorders
- To correct jaw or joint disorders
