Dental Bridges in Tijuana
Our Dental Services
There are several types of dental bridges.
Your Tijuana Dentist will recommend the most appropriate one depending on the location of the missing tooth and the condition of your teeth, mouth and gums. Normal bridges are used if there are natural teeth on each side of the gap where the tooth is missing. If you don’t have healthy teeth or enough teeth to support a bridge, or when several or all teeth are missing, implant bridges are used.
Pros of dental bridges are a natural looking appearance. There are usually only 2 dental visits needed. If you look after your bridges and oral hygiene, your fixed dental bridges should last as long as ten years or more.
There are cons if you don’t maintain proper oral hygiene. Acids from food on your teeth and gums can cause infection. You will also experience some discomfort from extreme temperatures after the procedure.
From an aesthetic point of view, a professionally executed bridge can improve the overall appearance of the teeth and mouth. This in turn will improve the overall appearance of the face and your smile.
Gaps between the teeth or a missing tooth are not considered as a serious problem by most of the people, but the fact is that these issues can result in several problems in the future. The biggest problem with the people having missing teeth is that they feel embarrassed to smile and laugh in the public. There are several reasons for losing a tooth, but the gap created between the teeth can be easily replaced with the help of dental bridges. Bridges are one of the latest solutions offered by the dentists to bridge the gap between the teeth.
Different types of bridges are:
- Fixed or non-removal
- Removable and Temporary
Materials used for bridges are:
- Cast metal
- Porcelain with metal support
- Acrylic and the latest technological advance: Fiber dental bridges.
With proper care dental bridges should generally last for about 10 years or longer. Just like natural teeth, bridges need to be brushed and flossed on a daily basis, several times a day. Your dentist in Tijuana will show you how to floss under and around middle of the bridge. Regular dental visits and professional cleanings are also important. If you have an implant bridge, your dentist will show you how to properly care for them.
The price of the different kinds of bridges varies and the great news is that most of the dental clinics accept dental insurance and other credit payment plans. So, if you are avoiding your visit to a dentist due to the cost factor involved in the treatment, just relax and feel free to see your dentist in Tijuana, instead of putting your dental health in jeopardy.
Several problems may occur if the treatment is not done in time. The major problems caused by these gaps are:
- Problems in chewing food
- Tilting of the adjacent tooth towards the gap created by a missing tooth
- Chunking of food in the gaps
- Growing incidences of cheek biting
- Growing occurrences of accidental tongue biting
- Eruptions of ulcers in the gaps
- Misalignment of the jaw
- The increased risk of developing a cavity in the adjacent teeth, and even the risk of acquiring gum diseases gets higher.
