What are Metal-Free Dental Bridges?
Metal-free dental bridges are an alternative to traditional dental bridges to replace lost teeth. They are made of ceramic or porcelain materials that match the color of your teeth.. As a holistic practice, we believe in using non-toxic and biocompatible materials that are safe for our bodies.
Metal-free bridges are made of strong, durable materials that can last for many years. Most importantly, they are also less likely to cause allergies, irritate the gum tissue, and cause gingival recession.
Why is Replacing Missing Teeth Essential to Your Oral Health?
If you have lost a tooth due to trauma or other dental issues, it is vital to have a plan to replace it in order to restore function. A missing tooth can lead to:
- surrounding teeth shifting
- further tooth loss
- gum disease
- gum recession
- bone loss
Benefits of Metal-Free Bridges
There are various health and aesthetic benefits to bridges, including:
- They are less visible and can provide a more natural look.
- They are made of solid and durable materials that last for many years.
- They are less likely to irritate the gum tissue since they are biocompatible.
- They can restore your smile and improve your oral health.
- They will boost your self-confidence.
If you are considering a metal-free dental bridge to replace missing teeth, contact the Holistic Dental Center of New Jersey today to schedule a consultation. We will help you determine if a bridge is a suitable solution for you.
How is a Dental Bridge Placed?
A dental bridge is placed by creating an abutment, or anchor tooth, on each side of the missing tooth or teeth. The abutment teeth are usually the adjacent teeth next to the space left by the missing tooth. The abutment teeth are prepared for a dental crown. Next, a mold is taken, and the bridge is cemented or bonded to the abutment teeth.
Caring for Your Metal-Free Dental Bridge
It is essential to practice good oral hygiene to keep your metal-free dental bridge clean and prevent gum disease. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily, and be sure to floss under the bridge to remove stuck food and plaque. It is also necessary to see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
Metal-free dental bridges can last for many years with proper care.
How do Bridges Compare to Dental Implants?
Bridges and implants can help restore your smile if you are missing one or more teeth. You want a restoration that feels and looks like your natural teeth while providing and restoring functionality. Discuss with one of our dentists which option is best for you.
Temporary vs. Permanence
Implants do offer a more permanent solution compared to other replacement tooth options. A bridge is a temporary restoration because it will have to be replaced after several years, but it can last with proper care.
Both implants and bridges can offer a natural-looking smile. They are custom-created to match each patient’s teeth and fit to provide a seamless look.
Dental implants replace the root of a tooth, and metal-free bridges replace the crown of a tooth. Bridges are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap and can affect how those teeth function.
Implants are an excellent option for people who want to replace one or more missing teeth. However, they are not for everyone, and a metal-free bridge could be the proper solution for patients who cannot receive a dental implant.
