Dental Bridges Downtown Vancouver Help Replace One or More Missing Teeth
Dental bridges are pretty much exactly what they sound like – a bridge made of prosthetic teeth! It's used to replace missing teeth and is supported by healthy adjacent teeth or dental implants. If you're missing one or more teeth, you should discuss this option with Robson Square Dental today. Leaving gaps in your smile can cause serious issues with surrounding teeth shifting, your jawbone weakening, and your facial structure changing.
Missing teeth can be a result of trauma to the mouth, tooth decay, or gum disease. With the proper care and determination, our dentist can help you achieve a healthier and happier smile.
The Many Benefits of Dental Bridges
Your overall dental health can drastically improve with the help of Dental Bridges Downtown Vancouver. Not only can it restore the appearance of your smile and your confidence, but it can also restore your speech and your bite/chew, help maintain the shape of your face, and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the gap. Crooked teeth can be more prone to tooth decay, cracking, and can even cause chronic headaches.
Which Dental Bridge Is Right For You?
There Are Multiple Dental Bridge Options
This is the most popular type of dental bridge used by our dentist. The dental bridge consists of a pontic tooth (typically made from porcelain or ceramics) that are held in place by dental crowns that have been permanently cemented onto the adjacent teeth.
Rather than being supported by dental crowns, a dental bridge can also be permanently supported by dental implants. Dental implants are a long-lasting and natural-looking solution to replacing missing teeth. They're surgically integrated to bone and, once healed, can hold the restorative teeth in place.
Cantilever Dental Bridge
This type of bridge is only supported by one dental crown (or abutment tooth), so only one, adjacent tooth is required. This option is often used to replace a front missing tooth.
