There are various reasons for needing dental bridges, including root canal not being a practical option, widespread tooth decay, or a sports injury or auto accident. At Best Care Family Dental, we will evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment options for you. With many years invested in researching, learning, and applying the necessary knowledge and expertise in the field, our doctor won’t suggest a bridge until after a thorough exam of your mouth. Dental bridges literally “bridge” the gap that is created by one or more missing teeth. There are two types of dental bridges. There is a fixed bridge and a removable bridge. With a removable dental bridge, you can remove it, brush your teeth and put it back in. Unlike Jackson Heights dentures
, a fixed dental bridge, sometimes called a permanent bridge, stays in.
Dental bridges are used to rebuild your smile, restore proper speech, help with chewing, and prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position. A fixed dental bridge is a more permanent solution, where a removable dental bridge is especially designed to be removable. Removable dental bridges, commonly called dentures, are less expensive and are easier to clean since you can take them out. Many of our patients believe that Jackson Heights dentures
are a full set of teeth, but as our dentist will explain, they can be in the form of a removable bridge that fills gaps left by missing teeth.Unlike full dentures, removable dental bridges are held in place by other existing teeth and don’t require daily adhesives, they won’t slide, and won’t cause problems with your eating or speech.
We will recommend a removable dental bridge when there aren't enough teeth left in your mouth to allow the placement of a fixed dental bridge. In this case, the only feasible solution may be a removable Jackson Heights dentures
, and we will go over all the pros and cons with you so you are able to make an educated decision. You can rest easy knowing that our expert dentist at Best Care Family Dental makes sure you don’t have to be without teeth during your healing period.
