Missing teeth, we can close or bridge the gaps in your smile!

For those dealing with missing teeth, visiting a dental bridge Melbourne clinic is an excellent option. Bridges include a false tooth or false teeth and crowns for the anchoring teeth. Implants or natural teeth help to support these teeth, allowing you to enjoy a natural looking smile. The great news is that dental bridges come with a variety of great benefits. They can help to restore your smile and also make proper speaking and chewing easier. Other benefits include preventing teeth from moving from their natural position, maintaining face shape and distributing the force of your bit correctly.

If you require bridges from a dental bridge Melbourne clinic, you’ll find that three different types are available to you. First, traditional bridges are one option that include creating crowns for  dental implants or teeth on the sides of the tooth that is missing. Usually these bridges are made with porcelain that is fused to ceramics or metal. Cantilever bridges are bridges that only have adjacent teeth on a single side of the tooth that is missing. Last, you have Maryland bonded bridges, which include plastic gums and teeth that use a metal framework for support.

Acquiring dental bridges will take several steps. First, the dental bridge Melbourne clinic will prepare the teeth used for abutment. This includes re-contouring the teeth and then impressions are made of these teeth as well. While you wait for the bridge to be made, your dentist will probably give you a temporary bridge that can be worn. In a second visit, the new permanent bridge will be adjusted and checked to ensure it fits. The temporary bridge will be taken out and the permanent one will be cemented into place.

Many people who end up needing dental bridges wonder how long they will actually last. The great news is that they usually last 5-15 years, although some may last even longer. However, making them last as long as possible will include caring for them appropriately. Caring for your bridge will include good dental hygiene, such as brushing your teeth and flossing on a regular basis. You’ll need to take special care around the area where the natural teeth and the bridges come together. Proper care also includes having regular dental check-ups  at your dental bridge Melbourne clinic. With the proper care for your bridge, the bridge will probably have a long life span.
