Advantages of the Dental Bridges Procedure
Missing teeth can cause several issues. Without the support of the surrounding teeth, others can begin to shift. When a tooth is lost, those next to it begin to shift toward the gap. This can damage the teeth and throw off the alignment of the jaws and disrupt how the joints of your jaw work. Pain and discomfort are often the results. If the problem is not corrected, it can lead to long-term chronic pain. Dental bridge procedures offered by Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, South Carolina, can restore the natural form of your mouth and relieve your pain and discomfort.
Durable and Strong
Fixed bridges are made from Zirconia when only one or two teeth are being replaced. Larger bridges that replace multiple teeth may require a metal bridge or set of dental implants to be used. Dental implants are permanent and make it possible to support all of the teeth that are left in place. Zirconia is an ideal material for bridges and is incredibly strong. It is fracture-resistant and can be used to maintain the integrity of the bridge. Dental bridges look just like your natural teeth. Many people will not be able to tell the difference between your dental bridge and your natural teeth.
When you have missing teeth, several things begin to happen. They can begin to shift and alter your bite pattern. The more your teeth are allowed to shift, the more out of alignment your teeth will become, and because of the poor bite pattern, pressure will be placed on both your teeth as well as your TMJ joints. Over time, this will lead to chronic pain and discomfort that may make it difficult for you to eat or speak properly. The longer your teeth are put under this type of pressure, the more likely they are to break. Having a dental bridge created can restore function and reduce the risk of damaging your teeth.
The Use of Digital Impressions
Digital impression methods that are used to create dental bridges are no longer the messy, uncomfortable mold matrix that often left a bad taste in your mouth. With advanced technology, digital impressions are now used. When a digital impression is created, highly sophisticated software will design the restoration down to the tiniest detail.
