It will give you back an incredible look to your smile whilst promoting the continual oral health in your mouth.

Like a lot of treatments that have been around for a while, the dental bridge is one of those that has benefited greatly from the advances in technology that have swept through the dental world over the past 30 years. Mind you, it has always been an efficient way to fill the gap left after the trauma of tooth loss. New crowns would often be wired in and then covered over with resin, or, a new tooth would be moulded between two crowns and cemented to the adjacent teeth either side of the gap; this method still remains but the resin technique has been rather superseded since the mini dental implant came along. Combined with a bridge, an implant anchors the fitting firmly into the mouth for strength and durability. Cleaning has always been an issue with dental bridges; you have to ensure that you clean under and around them after eating with floss and small brushes- a mouthwash is helpful too, but this shouldn’t detract from how beneficial a bridge is to both restoring your smile, and maintaining the health of your mouth. Surbiton is fortunate to be served by Mulberry Dental Care of Surrey: these are well versed on dental bridges so if you need to know more about this, just give them a call; they will be more than happy to offer their advice.

Cosmetic dentistry can resolve any issue that it is presented with, which is always nice to know when dealing with more shocking scenarios such as tooth loss. This can initially come as quite shocking should it happen to you, yet, it isn’t so hard to put right and there are quite a few good ways of going about it, one is to have a dental bridge fitted. This treatment goes back a long way, which means that it works, and what’s even better is that the techniques of fitting them and their design has improved with age. There are three basic types to choose from; the first is a replacement tooth welded between a couple of crowns and then cemented onto the teeth that sit either side of the gap. This can also be stretched over a gap of up to three missing teeth. The other two methods involve bonding the new tooth to others using wires and resins, although these techniques have rather taken a back seat since mini dental implants have been introduced to bridge-work. They have helped to anchor bridges securely, and also evolved the thinking in the design of dental bridges. If you need to know more about the dental bridge in Shepperton, you should give Mulberry dental care of Walton a call; they serve your area and can help answer any questions that you may have.

There are quite a few ways to repair the loss of teeth in the mouth, but as a Surrey practice suggests, you can do no wrong by opting for the tried and tested method of a dental bridge; the fact that they have been around for decades rather indicates just how successfully durable they are and they have even evolved. If you have only a single tooth to attach the new fitting to, it will be done using wires and resin. This can also be done when placing a fitting between two teeth, but the more traditional method around Kingston-upon-Thames is to have a new tooth moulded to two crowns that are then cemented over the adjacent teeth that remain. This bridge can cover several teeth that have been lost- however that could make the bridge weak in the middle, that was until the mini-implant came along- fit a couple of these and you can anchor the bridge solidly into place, making it last even longer than before. When you are fitted with your bridge, you will have to learn how to clean in and around them as they a notoriously good at housing food, but with a little help from your dentist you’ll be up and running in no-time, as will your beautiful smile that you may have thought you had lost forever.

For most people missing teeth are unattractive and debilitating. There are now several options available to fill the gap one of which is dental bridges. Using healthy teeth as the support structure, dental bridges offer a strong and durable replacement tooth that blends in with the rest of your teeth with its natural appearance.
Dental bridges become a permanent fixture of your mouth and, unlike dentures, cannot be removed accept by a professional once they have been put into position. The most common type is the fixed bridge, these use healthy adjacent teeth to support the false tooth. Either side of the missing tooth, the healthy teeth are filled down to create the perfect service for crowns to be placed. Designed to the measurements of your teeth, a false tooth is created which is firmly bonded to a crown on either side. The crowns are then positioned on the healthy teeth and anchor the false tooth in position. Your new tooth will then have a similar strength to your original, natural tooth as well as the same functionality. If there are not two healthy adjacent teeth your dentist may recommend a resin bonded bridge which uses metal strips bonded to a one other tooth, instead of the two crowns.
Before making any decision about your missing teeth speak to your Kingston upon Thames dentist. They will be able to layout all of the possibilities: bridges, implants, dentures and more. Each option has different strengths and weaknesses, your dentist will know which is best for your specific condition.

Tooth loss is a sorry state of affairs in Surrey, by whatever reason it happens. The aftermath however is the more difficult thing to get over; not only is there the shock of how different your mouth looks, there is the complication of further health issues arising in your mouth because of the loss. Though not essential in all cases, generally, it’s advisable to plug up the holes in order to protect your ‘bite’ and relieve pressure on your jaws and a tried and tested method is the use of a dental bridge. They come in many guises, depending on where the tooth loss has occurred. If for example you have lost a tooth at the back of the mouth and there is only a single tooth to bond the replacement to, it will be attached with wires and resin to the adjacent tooth. The more common bridge however is one that sits between to remaining teeth often called the Maryland bridge, the replacement tooth is bonded to two crowns that are then cemented onto two adjacent teeth; this can be used for multiple tooth loss as well, though, often in conjunction with a mini-implant. Whatever bridge you need for tooth loss, they can be a bit hard to clean at first as you will require some special little brushes to get under them, but if cared for, they are a fantastic replacement that will last you a good 15 years or so.

At Mulberry dental care, they know all there is to know about dental implants, but in these modern times, it isn’t heavy, gruesome reading like it would have been a decade ago, because the procedure has become more refined as dental technology has improved. The theory has never changed: the process involves screwing a small titanium rod into the jawbone that will eventually house your new fitting. In bygone years, this would involve drills and scalpels and stitching, which meant that the healing afterwards could take almost 6 Months. Thanks to modern technology in the form of a laser, a small implant, in fact, many can be placed in a day and in the case of denture wearers, you are good to go. Lasers cause very little damage to the jawbone and the surrounding gum tissue, in fact, it fuses the wound as it cuts so the gums recover quickly. The beautiful thing about implants is they are the perfect replacement to the root of a tooth, more resistant to infection and once they are in, they’re there forever. They perfectly house single crowns, dental bridges or dentures and make tooth replacement comfortable and more importantly, affordable- especially if you have insurance or a price plan going with your dentist, so come on toothless people of Weybridge, embrace the dental implant and put the life back into your mouth.
