Dental bridges are used to span, or bridge a gap (missing teeth) between healthy teeth.
Missing teeth can significantly affect the overall sense of wellbeing and may cause imperfect bites resulting in the remaining teeth migrating to the gaps, tooth decays or gum disease. A bridge uses the teeth on either side of a gap or one side of a gap to anchor onto and may only be used if the supporting teeth are strong enough. Dental bridging is carried out with the initial treatment of reshaping the teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth, bridge production and its attachment to the reshaped teeth. A dental bridge not only offers functionality but provides beautiful, natural looking teeth. Dental bridges can be chosen either as Porcelain or zirconium crowns.
There are different types of dental bridge fabrications, types of bridges and methods of its attachment to the adjacent teeth which means a patient can select the one that suits them the best.
A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated. In other words, the abutment teeth are reduced in size to accommodate the material to be used to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in a correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth.
very very happy
Hello my name is Declan Deane. I was recommended Tourmedical by very close friends of mine, who are patients for years with them. Im an age of my life where my teeth need to be checked, as you get older we all know the problems begin. The whole process is excellent from pick up from your hotel and taken to their spotlessly clean clinic, which you given your ‘blue shoes’ to wear immediately . All the staff are lovely, very friendly and professional. Your xray is taken and then you are guided through your treatment plan. Every step you are informed, what will be happening, from having your injections, impressions , checkings etc as the process is put into action.
Im at the end of the week now, had a day using my new teeth and back today for final check before I go home tomorrow and am very very happy with my treatment.
Thank you Declan Deane.
