The truth about lost teeth

Many people think it is no big deal to lose a tooth, but the fact is, having one missing tooth is not good. When one tooth is lost, you can expect the teeth next to it to go in the not so distant future. If the gap is left open, it can lead to more dental problems.
The best way to restore a full dental arch is with fixed bridges Mississauga. Depending on which type of bridge we are creating, its success depends on the foundation: it needs the bone, other teeth, and gums for support. The point is, you need to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.

Fixed bridges Mississauga – what are they?

A dental bridge is a fixed appliance that is locked securely into placed. Unlike dentures you don’t have to worry about them coming loose, since bridges can only be removed by a dentist. Fixed bridges are a great option to replace one tooth or multiple teeth in a row due to injury or gum disease.

There are several types of bridges to consider (porcelain or ceramic). At fixed bridges Mississauga, our porcelain fixed bridges are the most popular because they look natural and function as your original teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns which are placed on top of two anchoring teeth. Once they are attached, the gap or gaps between the missing teeth becomes filled.

Fixed bridges are made out of highly durable materials that are resistant to stains, chips and decay. With proper care, they can last for years and years. However, they may need repair or replacement due to normal wear.
What do fixed bridges do? The benefits:

Restore your smile to its natural strength and beauty.

  • Fill in gaps between teeth that can be embarrassing and make you look older.
  • Increase bite strength and reduce pain associated with common dental problems.
  • Remain in place as you eat, speak, and sleep – just like natural teeth.
  • Fixed bridges Mississauga: what to expect during our procedure

    It typically requires two visits to our dental office to complete the dental bridge. Our dental professionals will assess your general oral health by taking x-rays and carefully examining your teeth. If you are a good candidate for fixed bridges, our dentist will prepare the neighboring teeth for the procedure, and take highly accurate impressions (mold) of your mouth. The impressions will be used in the lab to design a bridge that match the shape and color of your teeth.

    In the meantime, you’ll be given a temporary bridge to wear for several weeks, in order to protect the teeth and fill in the gap. After the bridge comes in from the lab, you will be asked to return for a second appointment. Finally, the permanent bridge will be bonded or cemented to your tooth. We will then make final adjustments to ensure it fits well, and feels comfortable when you bite and chew.

    I had a strong, stable and attractive bridge placed. Now what? Since you won’t be able to remove it for cleaning, you have to maintain excellent oral hygiene, and clean thoroughly around the bridge.

    Smile with confidence knowing your smile is whole, healthy, and beautiful. If you have any questions about the procedure or fixed bridges Mississauga, book a consultation with our dental professionals today.
