After the distress of losing teeth, facing the treatment options can be a bewildering moment. Should you have dental implants or dentures or crowns or a dental bridge? Indeed, what are the differences? And what about the costs? However, the fact that there is a wide range of options is a positive thing for anyone exploring restoration dental work. The field of prosthodontics is developing all the time, and ill-fitting dentures no longer need to be endured. Indeed, at our central London specialist dental practice, we work with only the best dental laboratories to produce restorations of the highest comfort and finest quality. Balancing improved appearance and optimal and long-term function is our goal.
Why would I need a dental bridge?
A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis used literally to bridge the gap created by any missing teeth. Made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal, a bridge is made up of a false tooth or teeth held in place by crowns on the healthy abutment teeth (those either side of the gap). In some cases, dental implants will act as the anchoring teeth.
Is it a complicated treatment?
At 76 Harley Street, a specialist dental practice in central London, we understand that some patients are overwhelmed by the process; to that end, we ensure that each patient understands all their options, the reasons behind our recommendations, and the full schedule of costs before we embark on any treatment.
