It can be exciting to begin the process of restoring your incomplete smile. Once you receive your dental prosthetic, you should be able to smile, speak, bite, and chew with renewed confidence and comfort, particularly if you receive an appliance that is permanently set in place. However, you may have some concerns about the appliance’s ability to remain secure. If you are receiving a dental bridge, how confident should you be in its ability to remain in position over time? At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, patients who come to us with concerns over tooth loss can have a custom bridge put in place that restores their smile and bite. The dental bridge is designed to remain in position without requiring oral surgery, as there are two dental crowns that will be set in place on the teeth at each side of your gap.
A Dental Bridge Provides A Permanent Dental Prosthetic Without Oral Surgery
When a dental prosthetic is secured, it can do more than just make your smile appear complete again. A stable restoration can make it easier for you to bite and chew food, as you will not have to try and avoid a certain part of your smile where a gap is present. This leads to a better distribution of friction and pressure while biting and chewing. It also puts less pressure on your jaw while you move it, which makes you less likely to have problems with TMJ disorder occur over time!
Receiving Your Custom Dental Bridge
Before a dental bridge can be made, measurements from your smile are needed to make sure that the pontic (replacement tooth) and dental crowns in the appliance are the correct shape and size. After this information is gathered, it is used to craft a lifelike appliance that will be set in place at a follow-up appointment. Because your bridge relies on its crowns to stay in position, no oral surgery is needed to keep it stable. The appliance is stable enough for it to remain secure as you bite, chew, and speak over time.
What Else Can You Do To Restore Your Incomplete Smile?
Dental bridges are a popular solution for tooth loss, but there are benefits to using a dental implant to restore your incomplete smile that a bridge cannot provide. One benefit is that your implant will be able to stimulate your jawbone when you bite and chew food – this keeps your jawbone from losing mass. You will also be able to enjoy a permanent, lifelike appliance without having to have any work done on your remaining teeth! An implant is a small post that is inserted directly into your jawbone. As you heal, the surrounding bone tissues fuse with it to provide a remarkable degree of stability.
