Dental bridges at Dental Care Ireland

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a false tooth that is inserted to replace a missing one. It is anchored in place against two crowns on either side which are attached to the existing teeth (or implants, if required), so a bridge is formed. It should function and look just as well as your natural teeth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

If you are missing a tooth, it is important that you get it replaced for a number of reasons.  As well as affecting how your smile looks, a missing tooth can put strain on the other teeth as your chewing action changes.  The extra space can also encourage your remaining teeth to grow crookedly. This will exacerbate the strain on your teeth and cause more problems in the longer term. Food can gather in the gap and attract the bacteria that cause halitosis and tooth decay. By filling in the gap, your teeth become easier to clean.  In some cases, a missing tooth can also affect your speech.
