Dental Bridges in Surrey

If you have missing teeth in your mouth, your dentist may recommend filling the gap using a dental bridge. There are several types of dental bridges that can be used depending on where the missing tooth is located.

Types of Dental Bridge

When the gap is located between two teeth, your dentist will use a traditional bridge. A traditional bridge consists of two crowns that are attached to the adjacent teeth and hold the fake tooth in place. In cases where the gap is at the back of the mouth with only one tooth to attach to, a cantilever bridge is used instead.

How to Take Care of Your Dental Bridge

Once your bridge is fitted, you can regain the regular function of the tooth and eat and chew normally. However, it is essential that you follow good dental hygiene procedures and brush and floss your teeth regularly, paying particular attention to the dental bridge.
