The fear of losing a tooth is really a nightmare. Each one of us is Millionaire as we own all our 32 precious gems at times 28 gems excluding the four wisdom tooth. There is a saying ” when a tooth is lost, speech is lost”. Esthetics, smile, to consume food, speech, and phonetics, in all means tooth plays a vital role. A major cause for tooth loss is either tooth decay or gum infections. An unexpected trauma could also cause tooth loss. When this happens, it is important that you replace them immediately. Replacement is healthy because it will maintain the shape of your face, restore your smile and speech, prevents other teeth from moving out of place or drifting apart. Dental bridges are one such option for tooth replacement.
A dental bridge or false teeth bridge, closes the gap between teeth using the adjacent natural tooth called abutment. Dental bridges can also be supported by Implants. Gold, metal ceramic and all ceramic or zirconia are the types of materials. Metal, ceramic, and zirconia have the same color as your teeth. Richardson’s Dental and Craniofacial Hospital dentist, Dr. Shweta Richardson selects the most appropriate dental materials for the individual needs of our patients. The functional quality of our Dental works is competitive to natural tooth both in strength and durability. With good oral hygiene and regular professional checkups, the lifespan of dental Bridge can be over 10 years or even more.
