Bridge Dental Work: Closing the Gap in Style
When you lose a tooth, however that may happen, it’s not a nice feeling. Gaps in your mouth look a bit odd and you may be afraid people are bound to notice and will think you don’t take care of yourself. It’s just not a good look, anyway. You’re not some hillbilly stuck up a mountain, removed from civilisation, you’re a modern Australian and Kalgoorlie is a modern city. It is also a city with a forward-thinking dental practice, and for us at Goldfields Family Dental, bridge dental work is a speciality. We use it to restore our patients’ teeth to good order, attractiveness, and functionality.
What Does a Dentist Bridge Mean?
With anything from a single tooth bridge to a more complex arrangement, the principles of bridge work for teeth are the same. It makes a bridge between two stable teeth so that a new prosthetic tooth can be placed there, filling the gap and securely anchored on both sides. Bridge work teeth are sometimes called pontics, which comes from the Latin word pontus, meaning bridge. You’ve heard the old French song, Sur le Pont d’Avignon – same origin. On the Avignon bridge, secure and solid at both ends but with a new section in the middle. Read More
What is the Procedure for Having a Dentist Bridge your Gap?
All our dental bridges and crowns (which are another way of tackling a similar problem) are made in a specialist dental lab. We have a good look in your mouth to assess exactly what is needed, then pass the information to them and they will make your bridge to order, using the latest materials for excellent strength and realistic appearance. They give the finished article to us; we install it securely and you’re back in business as if nothing ever happened.
Forget the old notions of removable false teeth on a plate: they do still exist, but there is so much more that can be done these days when it comes to cosmetic dental treatments. Bridges are permanent, so you’re not going to be removing them at night and putting them in a glass in the bathroom. Yours will be in your mouth for the duration, fulfilling the function of the original one that somehow bit the dust. You will be biting and chewing effectively, and maybe smiling more than ever, just because you know you look good when you do it.
