The absence of teeth presents more than just a cosmetic concern; it can significantly impact both your oral and overall health. Missing teeth can contribute to various issues, including:
● Increased risk of gum or periodontal disease
● Higher susceptibility to tooth decay
● Teeth misalignment
● Speech impediments
● Chewing difficulties
● Damage or loss of adjacent teeth
● Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
● Weakening of the jawbone
Maintaining your dental health is paramount to overall well-being. Prolonged neglect of missing teeth can lead to structural and shape alterations in the jawbone .our dental practice, led by Ali Khosrovani, specializes in proficiently repairing and rejuvenating smiles and dental health through dental bridges and various restorative services.
UNDERSTANDING DENTAL BRIDGES
Dental bridges serve as a restorative solution for missing teeth. These bridges comprise two or more crowns, which are affixed to anchoring or abutment teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. Artificial teeth, referred to as pontics, are attached to these crowns, effectively closing the void and securing the bridge in place.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRIDGES
Traditional Bridge: Anchored on either side by dental crowns placed on natural teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap. The artificial teeth are crafted from durable alloys or porcelain, ensuring both functionality and aesthetics are restored
Cantilever Bridge: Here, the pontic is anchored to a single crown, cemented to one abutment tooth, as opposed to the traditional bridge’s reliance on two adjacent teeth.
Maryland Bridge: Similar to the traditional bridge, the Maryland bridge also attaches to two adjacent natural abutment teeth. However, instead of crowns, it utilizes a porcelain or metal framework bonded to the abutment teeth.
Implant-Supported Bridge: This bridge relies on dental implants, with one implant surgically placed for each missing tooth, securely anchoring the bridge in position.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL BRIDGES
Our dental bridges offer a multitude of advantages, including:
● Improved biting capability
● Restored ability to chew properly
● Reestablished facial shape and structure
● Prevention of adjacent teeth shifting
● Enhanced speech
● Protection against jawbone tissue loss
