If you have lost one or more teeth, you might want to consider exploring dental bridges as an option. Woodhaven bridges are a great alternative to getting dental implants when you can’t get them because you don’t want to have a surgical procedure done or you’re not a candidate for dental implants.
Woodhaven bridges are an excellent teeth replacement solution for patients who want a non-invasive method. Dental bridges have many advantages and provide patients with many benefits. They not only replace missing teeth, they also help maintain the shape of the patient’s face and alleviate stress on their bite. Bridges replace the patient’s missing teeth with artificial teeth. They are called bridges because they literally bridge the gap where the missing teeth should be. Bridges can be made by using several different types of materials. Some of the possible materials include: gold, alloy, porcelain or a combination of the previously mentioned materials. There are also two types of bridges you can get depending on your dental goals. You can get either removable or fixed bridges. Fixed bridges remain in place in the mouth and are fixed. Fixed bridges are cemented and bonded onto the surrounding teeth for support in order to keep them in place. Your other option; removable bridges, are also known as full or partial dentures. Removable bridges are not fixed and are not bonded. Therefore, unlike fixed bridges, they are can be taken out of the mouth at any time. Removable bridges or dentures do have some disadvantages. They can cause some difficulty with eating and speaking because they tend to slip and slide. They also have to be removed many times throughout the day for proper cleaning and to allow the gums to rest. If you’re interested in the possibility of getting dental bridges, your first step is to set up a consultation with an experienced dentist like ours at Liberty Dental.
