When a patient is missing one or more adult teeth, Drs. Cho, Hayat, and Reisner may recommend a dental bridge in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, to restore the beauty and functionality of the teeth. A bridge is made up of one or more replacement teeth with a dental crown attached on either side. The dental crowns are bonded to the teeth on either side of the gap.
Lifespan of Your Bridge
If a dental bridge is well cared for, it can last 10 years or longer. Tooth decay is a threat to the health of a dental bridge. Food can become lodged under the false tooth or between the tooth. If decay is the result, the teeth that support the bridge can become weakened.
Caring for Your Dental Bridge
There are a few things that it is important to remember to care for a dental bridge. A patient with a bridge should brush twice a day and floss once daily. They should also be sure to come in for their scheduled routine dental appointments.
