The benefits of a bridge
A bridge could be a great option to restore your smile
- A bridge will support the false tooth or teeth, and reduce the susceptibility of remaining teeth to decay and gum disease.
- A bridge will prevent your remaining teeth from drifting into the empty space, as well as to restore the appearance of your smile
- A bridge can delay or mitigate the need for an implant
You will need to clean your bridge and the false tooth or teeth it supports every day. Your dentist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss to ensure your bridge is thoroughly clean. To prevent damage, it’s best to avoid chewing hard foods and ice. By taking good care of your bridge, you can ensure it will last for many years.
