Getting over Tooth loss with a Bridge in London SE!

23 / 09 / 2011

Losing a tooth can be traumatic at the best of times in London SE1, but the complications that come with it afterwards can lead to a total breakdown in the mouth and affect the rest of the teeth that remain. Tooth loss can lead to infection in the mouth and further loss in the long run; one of the ways to counter this is to have a dental bridge fitted. Bridges have been around for decades and have proven themselves to be one of the cheapest and most affective ways of plugging the hole. Bridges come in various guises and what you require depends where the tooth has been lost. If a tooth has been lost at the back of the mouth, the bridge that will be fitted will consist of a series of wires and resin bonding to attach the new ‘tooth’ to the adjacent tooth that remains. If however, the tooth is lost amongst a line of others, the two surrounding teeth can be the housing for the new tooth. Essentially, the new tooth is cemented onto the adjacent teeth, pretty much like having a crown fitted. The point about dental bridges is that they are durable and can last you up to 15 years but they do come at a cost- your dental hygiene program has to change. Looking after your teeth after a bridge has been fitted is a bit of an art-form and to keep your teeth free from infection in the future requires attention to detail, especially when it comes to cleaning in and around the bridge. But help is always around in the shape of your dentist; they will be there to give you all the help and advice you need when it come to the after-care a bridge requires.
