Fixed bridges, also known as dental bridges, are used to fill large spaces in the mouth where more than one tooth is missing. In addition to preserving the surrounding teeth and jawbone, fixed bridges help maintain the shape of your smile and prevent future dental complications from arising. Fixed bridges are attached to dental implants for a permanent and worry-free solution that looks and functions like natural teeth. Fixed bridges act as an effective solution for replacing missing teeth and are a less expensive solution compared to individual dental implants.
The benefits of fixed bridges include:
- Maintaining face shape
- Improving the functionality of normal biting and chewing
- Restoring appearance and speech
A fixed bridge is a dental prosthetic used to replace missing teeth for patients who still have some healthy natural teeth. Dental bridges look natural and make it easier for patients to complete normal functions in their everyday lives. Unlike partial dentures, a fixed bridge is a permanent structure and cannot be taken in and out. Getting a fixed bridge eliminates the need for messy denture adhesives and other inconveniences that go along with removable appliances, including slipping or discomfort.
Bridges are easy to care for, as they can be brushed the same way as natural teeth. A fixed bridge has the power to improve facial structure and increase self confidence. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, a fixed bridge typically has a lifespan of over 10 years.
