Dental bridges are probably one of the best prosthetic ways to overcome the tragedy of tooth loss and they have lasted for decades remarkably well, not just because they do the job, but because the new ways to fix them and the materials from which they are made have evolved over the years. For starters, the type of bridge you have will be determined by where in the mouth you have lost your tooth and this will probably be decided by your dentist. But there is no reason why you shouldn’t have your say, so if you can get advice from Advance dental care and learn about what’s on offer, you can be part of the decision making, after all, it’s your mouth. There is a lot of resin and wire used in most bridges, especially if the new crown is being bonded to a single tooth. But the most common of all is the fixed bridge, a bridge whereby two crowns sandwich the new tooth and are cemented onto the two adjacent, remaining teeth. However, this works fine if only a single tooth has been lost, but in the case of many teeth being bridged, it would be better to anchor the fitting further by using a mini-implant. It is easy to say what is on offer, so if you have any questions about this treatment, you should ask Advance dental care for advice.
