Dental bridges are used to fill in a missing tooth. The way that they do this is by covering the adjacent teeth, at the same time as filling the missing tooth.
Your ability to get dental bridges depends on if the adjacent teeth are strong enough to support them. If you’re wondering if this might be an option for you the best thing you could do would be to ask your dentist.
Your dentist will be able to assess your teeth and if you can use dental bridges.
Dental bridges stay in place with the use of dental cement. Once a bridge goes in it is not removable. If you get a tooth pulled and you want to get a bridge, it is best to wait a little bit and let the socket heal.
There are a few different types of bridges and your dentist will be able to tell you what the best option for your teeth is. If your dentist decides to give you a bridge, the procedure will be done in two parts. The dentist will take a mold of your teeth to make the bridge in the first part. In the second part, the dentist will put the bridge in place.
