How are they made
Support from the neighboring teeth will be taken to make a dental bridge to replace the missing tooth or teeth. The teeth will be prepped as needed. To minimise any inconvenience, a local anaesthetic is usually administered before preparation.An imprint or a scan of the teeth will be taken and will be sent to a dental technician, who will then manufacture the bridge to the specific size, shape, and colour which will be fitted in your mouth by your dentist.
While the bridge is being made, our dental staff may want to place a temporary plastic bridge or crown.
When the bridge is made, the temporary bridge will be removed. Then, your dentist will put the permanent bridge into place. Your dentist might make minor changes to guarantee a comfortable bite before the bridge is finally fitted.
How to maintain your Dental Bridge?
An additional and consistent oral hygiene regimen is necessary following the fitting. However, if it is properly cleaned and well-maintained and if there is no accidental damage, the bridge will sustain for many years.
To avoid bad breath and periodontal (gum) disease, you should clean your bridge every day. Daily, you must also ensure to clean behind the prosthetic teeth. Our dentists and dental hygienists will guide you on the best home care regimens.
