Dental bridges bridge the gap in your teeth created by tooth loss. It is a device onto which a replacement tooth or teeth are fixed. In order to give you false teeth with which to eat your food, or help you speak more clearly. Dental Bridges can be anchored onto a gum free of natural teeth using a dental implant at either end. The implant is surgically attached to the jawbone and a crown is added to the top.
Receding gums happen for a number of reasons and if this recession is stopped early enough you won’t have more serious dental concerns in the future as a result. You might have noticed that your gums have shifted position on your teeth and that more of your teeth can be seen, without even experiencing any of the problems usually caused by gum recession. If that’s the case then it’s still worth booking a check up with our dentist here in Clapham.
