are bridges made of?
Bridges are usually made of
a precious metal. If the bridge will show,
porcelain is then bonded to the base. Sometimes,
there are other non-precious metals used
in the base for strength.
a bridge may seem expensive it will last
many years. It will also improve your appearance
and bite. A bridge uses the considerable
skill of the dentist and technician, and
in this way, it’s similar to ordering
a piece of hand-made jewellery. The materials
are also expensive so it’s fair to
say a bridge will not be the cheapest treatment
you have ever had.
do I look after my bridge?
to clean your bridge every day, to prevent
problems such as bad breath and gum disease.
You also have to clean under the false tooth
every day. Your dentist or hygienist will
show you how to use a bridge needle or special
floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.
