As such, it is necessary to choose an option for replacing the teeth. Teeth replacement options help fill the space left once you lose teeth. Without the space being filled, other teeth could shift out of their position and result in misalignment. A dental bridge is a restoration that features one, two, or maybe three artificial teeth utilized to replace the missing ones. A dentist attaches the bridge to the nearby teeth with dental crowns. As you prepare to get your dental bridges, here, we provide answers to frequently asked questions.

How Long Will Dental Bridges Last?

A common question that we hear about dental bridges is how long they will last. Patients who receive dental bridges and practice proper oral care can have restorations enduring for up to 15 years. This can go a long way in protecting your oral health and enhancing your bite function as well as aesthetics.

Can Anyone Receive Dental Bridges?

Yes, anyone can receive them, however, a dentist will have to conduct a comprehensive examination to see if there could be any issues that hinder you from getting dentures. One requirement for receiving dental bridges is that you should have at least one of your teeth missing.

Is the Process of Mounting Dentures Difficult?

Although it might take several appointments to get your dentures placed, the process isn't difficult. Nonetheless, it has to be conducted by a trained dental professional like a prosthodontist. In your first appointment, you have the teeth prepped for the bridge. The second appointment involves placing the bridge in the mouth.

Whether you lost a tooth recently or you have been living with several missing teeth, it is time you consider a teeth replacement option like dental bridges. Many people consider dental bridges because they help regain their everyday habits such as chewing and talking without difficulties.
