Solution for a missing tooth as it bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is a good solution for a missing tooth as it bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge can also be used for multiple missing teeth. The dental crowns that replace the missing teeth are joined together to fit over teeth on either side of the gap. There are different types of bridges depending on how they are fabricated and how they anchor to other teeth.

Dental Bridges Treatment in Christchurch NZ

Dental bridges help in restoring your smile and you will also be able to chew correctly. More importantly, they prevent other teeth from drifting out of position. When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth or teeth, your dentist will assess your oral hygiene and advise an appropriate treatment plan. If a dental bridge is found to be the best solution, then your dentist will prepare your adjacent teeth for the procedure. Initially, a temporary bridge will be provided till our dental laboratory fabricates a permanent bridge. You will require two or three visits to our dental surgery for the successful completion of your treatment.

What is Bridges?

Bridges are used to fill the gap from a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, permanently. They’re a fixed prosthetic device that is supported permanently by the teeth on either side of the gap.

At your first visit for a bridge, the teeth beside the gap are prepared to allow room for a bridge to be placed. Impressions of your teeth are made and sent to a technician to form a model of the bridge. Your dentist will make a temporary bridge for you to protect your exposed teeth and gums until the permanent bridge is ready.

Bridges offer many benefits including improved appearance and function. A bridge can also be used when teeth are badly damaged to replace teeth that can’t be repaired or saved.
