Articles Am I Suitable for a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges may be suitable if you have one or more missing teeth. At Harley Street Dental Studio in the heart of London, we listen to your needs and provide you with options in missing teeth replacements. Dental bridges are one of three choices in artificial teeth replacements, along with dentures and dental implants.
In considering who may benefit from having a dental bridge, it depends on factors such as:
- Oral health diagnosis
- Jaw bone density
- Personal preference
Oral health diagnosis largely determines the type of treatment that recommended for missing teeth gaps. A dental bridge may not be suitable if oyu have periodontitis. We provide a written treatment plan for each person, outlining the diagnosis and treatment choices most suitable to meet the individual’s needs.
Jaw bone density may be a reason why a dental bridge is recommended above dental implants. Some individuals have narrow or weak jaw bones, making them questionable candidates for dental implants. Dental crowns or existing teeth may be more suitable for linking a dental bridge.
Personal preference is another reason that someone may choose a dental bridge above dentures or a dental implant. If only a couple of teeth are missing, a traditional, cantilever or Maryland bridge may be the best option. Some people prefer bridges because they have a choice in materials, such as alloy, gold or porcelain.
Benefits of dental bridges
The benefit of dental bridges is that they fill missing tooth gaps, adding volume to the face and enhancing natural beauty. By completing a dental arch with a dental bridge, teeth alignment and bite function is improved, preventing dental trauma that may otherwise arise. You’ll regain confidence in your appearance and communication with others will become easier.
