Pros And Cons Of Dental Bridges

 

No one today ever enjoys losing teeth, however sometimes it is an undeniable fact and does occur. That said people often lose teeth by accident or simply due to disease and decay. Whether it is gum disease or a routine tooth extraction, the result is a gap between the teeth making it difficult or uncomfortable to chew. There is a wide range of options that should be considered when it comes to filling the gap. Dental bridges are one such option. Regardless of pros and cons of dental bridges as solution for restoring a lost tooth, they are simply a fixed type of dental restorations that will fill an empty space that is the result of a missing tooth.

 

Typically Be A Better Choice As Compared To Dentures

 

An artificial tooth is firmly affixed in place where there is a gap as the result of a missing tooth. Here are some pros and cons to consider when it comes to dental bridges. Perhaps most notable of all in terms of a bridge is that it is a fixed solution. A dental bridge will typically be a better choice as compared to dentures. This is due to the fact that dentures are not permanent in nature and may move for fallout. Dental bridges are permanent, fixed and do not fall out.

 

The Support Of Adjoining Teeth

 

The Support Of Adjoining Teeth

 

Best of all with dental bridges you can brush normally without ever having to remove the appliance. One drawback of dental bridges is that it requires the modification of perfectly healthy neighboring teeth. Some patients may find that bridges are not the best option because of this reason. Simply stated, to affix dental bridges requires the support of adjoining teeth. These adjoining teeth must be shaved down as a way to accept a cap or crown in order to place the dental bridge in a permanent and lasting way. Contact your Pinole dentists, Dr. Azadeh Hosseini and Dr. Ghazal Hosseini at Top Pinole Dental for more information on dental bridges and the various benefits of this important dental restoration option.
