A Fantastic Way to Repair Missing Teeth is Using Dental Bridges
To literally span the space where your tooth was lost, your healthy teeth are used as a bridge. To make dental bridges sturdy and long-lasting, materials like gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain are used in their construction.
In order to join the bridge to your teeth, you must first make abutments out of your natural teeth. The existing teeth are reshaped to serve as the bridge’s foundation. A mold of the area is taken once the abutments have been built, and it is transported to a dental lab. The bridge will fit perfectly and feel as similar to your original teeth as possible thanks to the usage of the mold by the lab. The pontic, which is the new tooth that fills the gap left by your missing tooth, is attached to the two crowns on either end of the bridge and placed on the abutments.
While we wait for the lab to construct your permanent bridge,
we will fit you with a temporary bridge. In addition to looking better than having a missing tooth, this will safeguard the abutments and the exposed gum areas. You will have a follow-up visit to install the bridge after the permanent bridge has been built. The dentist will place it on the abutments and apply an adhesive to secure it in place.
