Now That I Have Received Dental Bridges, How Long Will They Last?
Posted on 7/10/2023 by Alyce
Missing teeth not only creates an undesirable look but also impacts your bite function. The gaps caused by missing teeth often bring about improper and unbalanced bites that can exert pressure on the other remaining healthy teeth, making them vulnerable to damage.
Dental bridges are impermanent teeth used to fill in the space left by missing teeth. They make the other remaining teeth stronger. Dental bridges also make chewing easier and improve general self-confidence because of the improved smile. Once you have received the bridges, their life will depend on many factors, including:
The Method of Application
There are different ways in which dental bridges are fitted depending on the nature of the spaces left behind. For a lost tooth in between two healthy teeth, crowns are fitted on the two adjacent teeth to hold the dental bridge. Some bridges are bonded onto the natural teeth using adhesives while others use dental implants for support.
Expertise and Experience of the Dentist
How long the crowns will last will also depend on the expertise of the dental specialist attending you. A professional with enough experience and who gives attention to detail during the process, of course, will have more durable results than one who does things hastily.
How You Care for Them
Your overall oral care will determine how long your dental bridges will last. Good oral hygiene will make them last longer. Caring for them is not as hard as it may seem. Just brush and floss twice daily as you always do and maintain the normal dental checkups with a dentist.
Dental Bridges Lifespan
Most tooth bridges will last up to seven years, especially the removable ones, but those fixed on implants can last more than ten years. Just make sure you care for them adequately and that they are inspected routinely.
