All About Dental Bridges

Similar to a partial denture, a dental bridge literally “bridges” a gap in your smile created by missing one or more of your teeth. Dr. Schilling will secure your new restoration to natural teeth or dental implants on each side of the gap. Your state-of-the-art dental prosthesis will improve your quality of life by restoring your beautiful smile and maintaining your facial contours. You’ll speak with confidence, chew with ease, and enjoy your favorite foods once again.

Leaving a gap in your smile is a serious matter. The neighboring teeth may begin shifting and drifting into the space, resulting in a host of dental issues, including crooked teeth and problems with your bite. The imbalance caused by missing one or more of your teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). A dental bridge will enhance your oral health and prevent many dental problems down the road.

How Should You Care for Your Dental Bridge?

You’ll need to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong to ensure the success and longevity of your dental bridge. The best way you can do that is to maintain meticulous oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing. It’s also important to refrain from biting down on hard foods or objects to prevent damage to your dental bridge and your natural teeth. Don’t forget to contact Main Street Dental Smiles to schedule your twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings to ensure your oral health and your restorations stay in tip-top shape. With proper care, your dental bridge will continue to enhance your smile for many years to come!
