Did you recently lose a tooth? If so, we may recommend a dental bridge to fill the gap in your smile. A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration comprised of a false tooth suspended between two crowns on adjacent teeth.
To learn if you’re a candidate for a tooth bridge, call our dentist office in Plymouth, Michigan today. Our dentists will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have during your consultation.
How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?
The lifespan of your tooth bridge depends on many factors, such as how often you brush teeth, smoke, grind teeth, chew ice, eat hard foods, or use your teeth as tools. The better your oral hygiene habits, the longer your dental bridge is likely to last.
Make sure you continue brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once daily. You’ll also need to schedule a teeth cleaning and oral examination with our office every 6 months.
Can You Have a Bridge on Your Front Teeth?
Yes, we can create a dental bridge for front teeth. A front teeth bridge fills the gap in your smile left by a missing tooth so you can eat, talk, and smile with confidence. Our dentists will make sure your new restoration looks and feels natural.
Is a Bridge Better than an Implant?
A dental bridge is different from an implant because it sits above your gums while an implant is placed in the jawbone. Both dental bridges and implants are carefully made to look like natural teeth. Our dentists will be able to determine whether you’re a better candidate for a tooth bridge or implant.
