Dental Bridge Compensation Lawyers Liverpool & North West London
We can assist in cases concerning failed dental bridges.
Dental bridges are false teeth which are secured onto neighbouring teeth in order to replace one or more teeth which are missing. Dentists recommend bridges for both cosmetic and clinical reasons. Whilst, in most cases, these procedures go to plan, there are instances when you suffer as a result of an error or mistake by a dental professional. Our team of specialist dental negligence lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Dental Negligence Lawyers Liverpool & North West London
Standard bridges work via the insertion of a false tooth supported on either side by a crown. These crowns will fit over your natural teeth on either side of the gap.
The false tooth can be made from porcelain, gold, alloy or any combination of these materials.
There are three types of dental bridge, Maryland bridge, Traditional bridge or Cantilever bridge.
Why can problems develop?
It is essential that a bridge is fitted with accuracy so that the gap between the prosthesis and the tooth cannot be seen with the naked eye or allow entry of the tip of a probe. Overhangs or deficiencies should not exceed 0.5mm and the embrasures should be large enough to allow access for oral hygiene measures.
Failure to achieve these recognised standards may result in decay developing in the underlying teeth causing the bridge to fail.
Sometimes a bridge will come off repeatedly. This may be due to a variety of factors but the size, shape and relationship to the opposing teeth should be considered as possible problems as well as the way the bridge fits on the supporting teeth.
