Dental bridge procedures for NHS and private patients in Stirling
Dental bridges are similar to crowns, but are used to fill the gap or gaps left when teeth have been lost. At Riverside Dental Practice, we have been carrying out dental bridge procedures for patients within the Stirlingshire community for many years. Whether you’re on the NHS or have private healthcare, you can access quality treatment from our experienced dentists in Stirling.
What are the advantages of dental bridges?
- Dental bridges are very easy to get accustomed to in a short amount of time
- They feel exactly like your own teeth and do not cover the palate, making eating and speaking much easier.
- Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges are fixed in place, so they do need to be removed for cleaning.
- Dental bridges are very durable and as long as they are properly maintained, they have a very long lifespan.
The force of chewing is passed on to the abutment teeth instead of the gums themselves, making eating and chewing feel natural and comfortable.
