Dental bridges

Mind the gap! Or just get a bridge. A dental bridge is a way to fill in the gap left by one or more missing teeth.

Dental Bridges Side Effects

Dental bridges, if not maintained, can decay and cause further tooth infections. Tooth sensitivity in anchor teeth is likely.

Who shouldn't use it: Dental bridges won't work if the surrounding teeth are not in good condition. In addition, without regular brushing, flossing and dental visits, bridges can trap bacteria and decay, forcing the bridge to be removed and potentially harming nearby teeth.

Drawbacks: Dental bridges require vigilant dental hygiene. They may weaken the teeth they are attached to, causing further tooth decay and potential tooth loss.

Recovery Time For Dental Bridges
