If you want to keep your crown for as long as possible, you must stick to your daily oral hygiene routine. To keep your teeth and gums healthy you should brush them twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and keep the gaps between your teeth clean with floss or interdental brushes. You should also visit your dentist and hygienist at regular intervals.
A bridge spans the space where teeth are missing. It is anchored with cement to either natural teeth or implants that surround the gap. A replacement tooth is attached to the bridge to fill the space. You will have a choice of materials for your bridge, and we are happy to advise which is the best choice for you.
A bridge can improve the appearance of your smile. It will reduce the strain on the teeth that sit on either side of a gap and help to keep them in place. A bridge can also improve the way your teeth bite together.
