Dental bridges may be the ideal choice if you have lost teeth. A dental bridge is a device that is put in the place of missing teeth. There are a number of benefits that can be reaped from getting a dental bridge. This device will prevent your teeth from shifting. If your teeth shift, then your chances of developing gum disease will be greater. Furthermore, dental bridges help you maintain a vibrant, healthy smile.
Fixed bridges, Maryland bridges and cantilever are the different bridges that you can choose. Fixed bridges are the type that are used most often. A fixed bridge is made up of a prosthetic tooth that is secured in place with two dental implants or two dental crowns.
Maryland bridges are usually used to replace front teeth. These bridges are made up of prosthetic tooth and metal bands. Cantilever bridges may be the best option for patients who are only missing one or two teeth. The standard cantilever bridge is made up of a prosthetic tooth and two crowned teeth. The two crowned teeth are connected to the prosthetic tooth. Dr. Albert will help you find the one that is right for you.
Dental crowns can be placed over cracked, damaged or decayed teeth. Acrylic resin, porcelain and gold are the different types of crown material that can be used. Porcelain is preferred because it looks very natural.
