How do bridges work?
Bridges span the entire span of missing teeth and fill the gaps between teeth. It is important however that you have a few natural teeth intact to act as anchors for the bridges. Speak to our dentist at Keysborough and find out what works best for you.
How long do crowns and bridges last?
While crowns and bridges are designed to last for around ten years, poor upkeep can cause them to loosen or fall out. People with crowns or bridges should ensure their longevity by practising good oral hygiene. Care should be taken to keep the gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Also, avoid chewing hard food to prevent it from damage.
