Restoring Your Smile with Dental Bridges
Among the many restorative options available at Union Square Dental, we offer dental bridges as a convenient and reliable tooth-replacement method. They can be used to replace one or two teeth at a time, as long as a healthy tooth is on either side. Bridges can also be anchored directly on top of dental implants.
A dental bridge is essentially multiple crowns fused together into one piece. This multi-unit restoration is cemented onto teeth at both sides of the open space. The middle portion of the bridge is the false tooth or teeth that span the area between. While they are suspended over the gums, they look just like natural teeth when you smile and talk.
Why Do I Need a Bridge?
Without something there to fill in the open space, teeth on the opposing arch could erupt out of place. Those teeth next to the open space where your tooth used to be will also come out of alignment. In fact, the shifting can impact teeth throughout the entire mouth. Bridges act as a retainer for spacing, biting, and the aesthetics of your teeth, allowing you to chew normally and feel great about showing off your smile!
Caring for Your New Restoration
Maintenance of your fixed restoration is very simple, and can help it last as long as possible. With a little diligence, you can keep your surrounding teeth and the gums under your bridge healthy. Brush your bridge regularly, floss around and underneath to keep each of the surfaces clean each day. A floss threader or water flosser can make the process very easy!
