Dental Bridges Galway
Dental bridges are the ideal solution for replacing missing teeth and keep your mouth healthy and functional. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, with missing teeth leading to neighbouring teeth shifting, tipping, or even ‘super-erupting’ into the space.
When teeth drift from their normal and healthy position, they often become susceptible to decay and gum disease. Furthermore, drifting teeth may lead to changes in your bite, putting stress on your jaws, muscles, teeth and temporomandibular joints (TMJ). This in turn can damage your ability to chew and may even change your appearance depending on the location and number of missing teeth.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges provide a fixed replacement for one or more missing teeth. The dental bridge consists of the replacement tooth or teeth, attached to crowns that fix onto the adjacent teeth. These replacement teeth are shaped, coloured and contoured in order to blend in with the natural teeth in your mouth.
How are dental bridges installed?
Having dental bridges installed will take at least two visits to complete. At your first visit, we will reduce your adjacent teeth and take an impression of your teeth to be sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication.
When you come back to your second appointment, Galway Dentists’ Dr. Eilis O’Hagan and Dr. Michael Donnelly will permanently place and fit the bridge in your mouth. Like crowns, you can have your dental bridge made from a variety of materials for strength and the aesthetic appearance you want.
At Galway Dentists, we will always discuss your options before going ahead with any treatment, taking your individual needs into account, however we generally consider fixed restorations, such as dental bridges, the ideal solution for tooth replacement.
