Dental Bridges in Caddens, Penrith
What is a dental bridge?
The bridge is fused to the teeth next to the gap. This means that the bridge replaces the absent tooth and prevents any further movement of the adjacent teeth.
How is a dental bridge put in place?
The process followed for the creation and insertion of a bridge is very similar to that of a crown. Two appointments are required. Firstly, the dentist will get the teeth alongside the space ready for crowns and a mould of the new teeth is generated. A temporary bridge is fitted in the mouth in the meantime. Secondly, once the permanent bridge has been created, the dentist will fit the bridge and fine tune it to its perfect position before fixing it in place.
