Dental bridges are needed to replace a lost tooth or several lost teeth. Dental bridges can be a good solution for anyone who has missing teeth, as they will keep all the other teeth in their proper places. This prevents teeth shifting and damage to the other natural teeth roots. Dental bridges can even help prevent possible loss of other teeth in the future since they do so much to preserve the position of surrounding teeth. A dental bridge is both functional and cosmetic. Many people experience the embarrassment of missing teeth. Some people haven't smiled in a very long time simply because they want to conceal unsightly gaps in the teeth, and dental bridges can make the smile whole again.
Dental bridges are less expensive than dental implants, especially in cases where multiple teeth need to be replaced. A dental bridge is also quicker and easier than a dental implant. Bridges usually take just a single dental visit once the teeth are extracted. In terms of lifespan, dental bridges don't last as long as dental implants, so the benefits and drawbacks must be carefully considered by each individual. The Sunrise Dental of SeaTac team is happy to help people determine which option is best for them.
A dental bridge lasts for around 8 to 15 years on average. Dental bridges are subject to wear and tear, just as the natural teeth are. This means that good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups are especially important for patients who want to maximize the lifespan of their dental bridge. Dental bridges can be easily replaced when they begin to show signs of major wear and tear. This replacement is just as simple as the original dental bridge placement and allows for an uninterrupted full smile.
