Restore your smile
Bhandal Dental Practice believe dental bridges are a fantastic form of restorative dentistry, which should be considered as a solution for missing teeth. Both affordable and effective, the false teeth are anchored onto their healthy neighbours, to replace the gap caused by one or more missing teeth. A typical dental bridge generally consists of a pontic, or false tooth used to replace the missing tooth, and two crowns, which serve to anchor the false tooth in place.

Aside of the cosmetic reasons for replacing a lost tooth it is important to preserve the structure of the mouth. With a tooth missing the surrounding teeth can begin to move and the bite will be affected. With no tooth in place the gum also begins to recede, which in turn can affect the structure of the face.
A bridge is a dental restoration where the teeth adjacent to the gap are cut down and then the bridge is fitted over those teeth and gap, effectively "bridging the gap". This can sometimes reduce the life span of the adjacent teeth. . An implant can replace single or multiple teeth. Sometimes patient will need implants and bridges when a large span is needed. Implants require no treatment to existing teeth.
The number of teeth that can be replaced with a bridge depends on the location of the missing tooth or teeth and the health of the surrounding teeth. In most cases, bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are designed to be a permanent solution to replacing one or more missing teeth. With proper care, your bridge can last for many years. However, the lifespan of your bridge will depend on the materials used and the amount of wear and tear it experiences.
