Bridges are used to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant to allow the gaps in your smile to be filled in.
Any false teeth needed are held in place by being attached to natural teeth, which are prepared in the same way as for crowns. Occasionally adhesive or sticky bridges are needed to help fill a space. These bridges use a small plate glued to the inside of your teeth. Bridges are an ideal way of creating a complete smile.
How long a bridge lasts depends on how well it is looked after. It is important to keep this area just as clean as you would your natural teeth in order to prevent decay affecting the bridge. Here at Brixworth Dental Practice we recommend regular six monthly dental examinations and hygiene appointments.
