Appearance and better function of the mouth. The gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth on each side. The bite can be affected because the teeth on each side of the missing tooth can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth meet. Food can get into the gap and decay and gum disease will develop.How are missing teeth replaced?
The placement of missing teeth depends on the location of the gaps and the condition of the remaining teeth. There are a few options to replace missing teeth. A bridge is usually used where fewer teeth need replacing. An implant can be placed into the gap of the missing tooth or a partial denture.What are Dental Bridges ?
A dental bridge also restores your smile and is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental Bridges are a permanent and realistic looking way of filling a gap between teeth caused by one or more missing teeth. Our dentists are specialists in dental bridges in Smile Care Dental Clinic & Implant Center in Airoli.
A bridge is a false tooth which is held in place by the teeth next to it. It is usually made of a precious metal base such as gold, with tooth coloured porcelain bonded to any visible areas to make it look natural.
Most often, the two neighbouring teeth – one on each side – will need to have crowns fixed onto them. The two crowns are then joined together by placing the false tooth between them and cementing them in place. This is known as a fixed bridge.
Creating a fixed bridge is usually a good option if the teeth either side are strong enough to support the bridge.
