Dr. Motakef and her team at Alipaz Family Dentistry believe that every person deserves a health smile and access to affordable dental care. For that reason, we offer dental care that helps patients maintain healthy smiles as well as treatment for patients that need their smiles restored, including dental bridges. Teeth are very important for speaking, chewing food and keeping other teeth in their proper positioning. If you are missing teeth, dental bridges offer a comfortable solution to give you your smile back.
Bridges are permanent dental appliances that can replace missing teeth, helping to recreate a complete, beautiful smile. They are extremely durable and designed to last for many years, although they will occasionally need to be replaced to repair normal wear and tear. The most popular type of bridge consists of a porcelain tooth fused to two dental crowns to secure the replacement securely in your mouth. Bridges can serve a variety of functions, including:
- Filling a gap left behind by a missing tooth
- Helping maintain a balanced facial structure
- Helping to preserve current tooth alignment
- Restoring chewing, swallowing, and speaking ability
- Improving the overall aesthetics of the smile
- Providing a permanent alternative to a partial denture
How do I take care of my bridge?
It’s very important to maintain excellent oral hygiene with brushing and flossing to keep the bridge and surrounding teeth clean.
