Dental Bridges in Vancouver

Many patients lose teeth as they age. This can actually change the way your mouth looks and functions. It also can change the look of your face. Bridges are made with artificial teeth to help improve the function of your teeth and the shape of your mouth.

Types of Dental Bridge

There are many options for bridges. Your dentist will select a dental bridge based on the location of the missing tooth. A traditional bridge is used for a gap between two teeth. It consists of two crowns fitted to the adjacent teeth, which hold a fake tooth in place. Bridges can be removable bridges, which you can remove yourself, or fixed ones that are implanted right into your jaw or under your gums.

How to Care for Your Dental Bridge

Care for your dental bridge in the same way that you care for your natural teeth; brush and floss your teeth daily using a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste. Use floss threaders to clean underneath your bridge to remove any food particles that may have built up. Also, try to avoid very hard or chewy foods that may cause damage to your bridge.
