Bridge the Gap of Missing Teeth!

 A dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made of two or more crowns  which will be placed over healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth; these healthy teeth are referred to as abutment teeth. The crowned abutment teeth become supports for a third crown placed in between them; that third crown is referred to as a pontic. If more than one tooth is missing, more crowns will be needed to bridge the gap in between the abutment teeth.

The number of abutment teeth necessary to replace missing teeth is influenced by the number of missing teeth, the size and length of the abutment tooth roots, the amount of bone support each abutment tooth has, as well as where in the mouth the missing tooth is located. For example, if you have three missing teeth, four abutment teeth may be necessary, thereby creating a seven-tooth bridge. Engineering and designing of the bridge requires an understanding of how to replace teeth, as well as the biology of the supporting gum and bone tissue.

Bridgework requires the same conscientious care as your natural teeth.

Be sure to brush and floss between all of your teeth — restored and natural — every day to reduce the buildup of dental plaque. When you have a bridge, it is even more important to maintain your regular schedule of cleanings at your Wellington, Royal Palm Beach dental office. Avoid using your teeth as tools (to open packages, for example). If you have a grinding habit, wearing a night guard would be a good idea to protect your teeth and your investment.
