Dental Bridges – Advantages and Disadvantages

 

Since the early part of the last century, bridges have been a vital part of contemporary dentistry, and the preferred approach for removing teeth was before the use of implants. Two stable, strong, abutment teeth must be factored into the calculation in order to really consider the design and construction of a dental bridge. Preparing them requires contouring and reshaping them by scraping enough enamel from the teeth to create space for mounting a crown on top of the remaining stub of the tooth. The elimination of the original form and arrangement of your anchor teeth is the main downside associated with conventional dental bridge designs.

For several patients, dental bridges are a suitable restorative dentistry process, but not the only available option. It is essential to consider the advantages and disadvantages of the procedure to determine the proper use of dental bridges for each unique situation. In addition to a denture base, which connects the two crowns and bridges the gap, a dental bridge usually consists of two crowns mounted on the abutment teeth or implants on either side of a hole in the jaw. Different materials such as gold, silver, porcelain, and porcelain-fused metals can be designed for the bridge.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges, which account for their level of use in restorative dental practice, have many beneficial consequences.

Disadvantages of Dental Bridges

There are also, after all, several disadvantages related to the use of dental bridges in restorative dentistry.

Evaluating the Advantages and Disadvantages

The appropriate form of restorative dental care would rely on the individual situation, and in the decision-making phase, the benefits and drawbacks should be weighed. In addition to the costs and advantages of each choice, it is mandatory for the dentist to present the multiple choices to patients so that they can make the optimal decision together.
