Advancements in technology and materials mean that today’s dental bridges are more attractive and realistic than ever. Dental bridges are one of the most tried and true tooth replacement options available. Additionally, they are a great alternative for people who cannot have dental implants.
Traditional dental bridges consist of two dental crowns on your natural teeth with abutments to hold the artificial (replacement) tooth in the center. Bridges are made to match the rest of your teeth, so that they appear completely natural.
Because of the nature of dental bridges, keeping them clean can pose a challenge, but is easy if you stick to it. Food can sometimes get lodged in part of your bridge and may require a special brush or special floss to remove it. It is extremely important that you keep your dental bridge clean, just like your natural teeth, otherwise you can risk losing your investment.
