A missing tooth can cause serious damage to your self-confidence as it alters your looks as well as smile. It can also lead to various oral health problems like misalignment, temporomandibular joint disorder, speech problems and also other types of dental problems. Hence the best way to replace lost teeth is by getting dental bridges fixed which can be done by any specialized dentist in Leeds Central.
Dental bridges are similar to dentures and implants but are more beneficial and comfortable than the latter. There are various types of bridges like resin-bonded, conventional fixed bridges and cantilever bridges. The last two types require the adjacent teeth to be shaped so that you get a proper fit after the dental bridge implant. But the resin-bonded type need very little shaping done to the adjoining teeth and hence is most preferred for replacing missing front teeth.
Consult a dentist who will examine your teeth as well as the health of your gums and let you know if you can be fitted with a dental bridge. If you are found to be a good candidate for this procedure, he will then proceed to shape your adjacent teeth which function as the support systems for the new bridge. Next an exact impression of your teeth is taken to create the dental bridge; you will have to return another day for the fitting procedure after the bridge has been created to your specifications.
You could also ask the doctor to give you a temporary bridge till the new one is ready. During the next visit, the dentist will fit you with the custom made dental bridge. And you can soon start smiling again with confidence.
