What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth, bridging the gap created by the missing tooth or teeth. They are anchored to the neighboring teeth and can:

  • Restore your smile
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
  • Restore the ability to chew and speak properly
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth

Types of Dental Bridges Available

  • Traditional Bridges: Involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bridges: Consists of a pontic that is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Supported by dental implants rather than natural teeth.

Signs You May Need a Dental Bridge

  • Missing one or more teeth.
  • Shifting of adjacent teeth.
  • Changes in bite and difficulty chewing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bridges

A dental bridge fills the gap between teeth using a false tooth supported by adjacent teeth or implants, while an implant replaces the tooth root with a metal post and adds a crown.

Most people adjust to a new bridge within a few weeks, adapting to the feel and function.

While dental bridges are durable, they can fail due to poor oral hygiene, dental decay, or trauma.

Modern dental bridges are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable.

Alternatives include dental implants and partial dentures, depending on the specific dental needs.
