Dental Bridges Brampton
It is very important to replace a lost tooth with a false tooth immediately to stop your other teeth from moving and causing further problems.
Dental bridges are also known as ‘fixed bridges’ or ‘fixed partial dentures’. They can replace one or more missing teeth and are held in place by the other adjacent healthy teeth as a permanent fixture in your mouth. Crowns are added to your healthy teeth to help cement the bridge in place, and together they last about ten years with good oral care.
Depending on how significant your tooth loss is, you can get either full or partial dentures.
Partial dentures are removable and are used when your healthy teeth are not strong enough to support a fixed bridge. They stay in place using metal clasps and can be removed each night for cleaning.
Full dentures are a full set of false teeth and are completely removable. They are used when you natural teeth are missing and must be cared for very carefully to ensure their longevity.
There are 4 steps to caring for your dentures:
- Keep your denture clean to prevent plaque build-up and gingivitis
- Clean your mouth after removing the denture using a soft toothbrush or damp cloth
- Soak your denture in the provided cleanser nightly
- Follow up with your dentist to maintain your oral care and prevent any other issues from arising in the future.
