When you start to lose your teeth, that does not necessarily mean that you have to move straight away to a full set of dentures. You still have many healthy teeth that do work, after all, and this isn’t the Victorian era where we just give up! Dental research has developed hugely over the last few years, and one of the greatest advancements is the fixed dental bridge, a clever piece of dental design that can be customized uniquely for the patient that it is going to be fitted to, and then placed in the gap of two or more teeth to fill in the space in the patient’s smile. Most people will not even know that they are ‘false’ teeth because they would have been colored and shaped to match the other natural teeth, and because the dental bridge is fixed in the mouth, there is no movement and therefore no painful sores to consider.
Sounds too good to be true? That is down to the clever dental research that has been going on for so long. When taken care of properly, a fixed dental bridge can last for years, if not decades, and will happily work exactly like any of your other teeth. If you want to have a fixed dental bridge then you will need to have a full consultation with your dentist, one like Dr Paige Woods who is an expert in these matters. She will consider your own teeth and dental health, and decide whether or not a fixed dental bridge is a good option for you – and then take a mold of your mouth so that the dental bridge can be created to fit you perfectly. At your second appointment it will arrive, ready to be fitted into your mouth carefully by your dentist, and then you can walk out of there with a really beautiful smile on your face.
