Dental Bridges

Gaps in your smile can be unsightly and make it difficult to eat and talk. If you’re missing a tooth, your dentist can fill in the gap using dental bridges.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is simply a false tooth held into place by the real teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges can be an alternative to other dental services like dentures or dental implants. After receiving your dental bridge, you will have to care for it like you would any normal tooth. This means brushing and flossing daily, as well as regular visits to the dentist.

Different Kinds of Dental Bridges

One of the most common dental bridges is the fixed bridge. This means the teeth on either side of the gap will be capped with dental crowns and fused together with another crown that fills the gap. Another common dental bridge is the cantilever bridge. As the name implies, this type of bridge only uses one tooth as an anchor. The Maryland bridge is one style of dental bridge that doesn’t use crowns to hold the false tooth in place. Instead, small wings made from metal or ceramic are bonded to the teeth on either side of the gap. This method is less invasive, but requires that the two adjacent teeth are strong and healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which style of dental bridge is best for me?

    There are several different kinds of dental bridges available, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. It’s important that you discuss your unique needs with your dentist before making any decisions.

  • How do I care for my dental bridge?

    In many cases, you can treat your dental bridge just like you would treat a regular tooth. Don’t forget to schedule regular appointments at your local dental clinic.

  • Are dental bridges expensive?

    The cost of dental bridges varies depending on their style. However, most dental bridges are more affordable than more invasive treatments like dental implants.
