A bridge may be recommended if you are missing one or more teeth. Generally the gaps that are left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, this eventually results in you, the patient having a bad bite. Apart from this, the imbalance that has been caused by you having missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders.
Here at Govan Dental Care we use bridges to span the space where the teeth are missing. If the treatment is for you then you can expect the bridge to be cemented to the natural teeth or for there to be implants surrounding the empty space, this is because these teeth are serving as anchors for the bridge. One of our dentists will then discuss which material is best to use based on the location of your missing tooth/teeth, it’s function, aesthetic considerations and the cost.
Before a bridge can be made for you one of our dentists at our practice in Glasgow will have taken an impression of your mouth, we do this because it will provide an exact mold for the bridge. The impression that has been taken will then be sent away to the dental lab where they will make the bridge as specified by the dentist.
The dentists here at Govan Dental Care have years of experience in fitting bridges for patients in Glasgow, so you can expect to receive only the highest standard of care.
