If you’re reading this blog about Kowhai Dental, Whangarei Dental Bridges, you might be missing at least one tooth.  If you’re in that situation, don’t feel bad. Research indicates that the average adult between 20 and 64 years old has at least three missing or decayed teeth.

There are several different kinds of dental bridges that you can choose from. Here’s a bit about each so that you can make an informed decision.

Cantilever Bridges

This is one of the best options if you have any missing teeth. This type of bridge is supported on one tooth rather than on both sides with the appliance affixed to one natural tooth.

Our dentists need to prepare your good tooth by removing some of the enamel. This allows for our bridge to be anchored. It’s important to us that you’re kept in the loop at every stage during this process, which means that you can come in at any time with your questions about our Kowhai Dental, Whangarei Dental Bridges. We are always happy to help because we want our patients to be well-informed.

Traditional Bridges

This is the type of bridge that’s most popular. It consists of a row of false teeth held in place by an anchor of dental crowns. It’s important to keep in mind that your adjacent teeth will need to be smoothed over. This means removing some enamel and protecting them later with dental crowns.

Bridges with Implants

There are several different types of bridges for you to choose from. Most of these will depend on your individual situation. For example, implant supported bridges are another variety that we use.

This is the best-case scenario when a patient has lost more than one or two of their natural teeth. It works when dental implants aren’t feasible.

 It doesn’t matter what kind of dental service you’re looking for, we have the experience that you need. Take a few minutes to look through our services and you’ll see we offer complete care for every stage in your dental treatment.
