What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is often a suitable solution for missing teeth. It is more affordable than dental implants or other alternative treatments. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are shaved down to become anchors for the bridge to replace the missing tooth.
The dental bridge is made up of 3 or more artificial teeth that are custom-made and bonded together to the anchors. It is then seamlessly fitted within the gap left by the missing tooth. Call us to get an appointment.
Why Dental Bridges Are an Ideal Choice for You
- Missing teeth cause inconvenience in basic activities like eating and speaking. The problems can also worsen with time.
- The space caused by missing teeth can lead to other far-reaching health concerns such as gum infection, bone loss and more.
- Missing teeth can make the neighbouring teeth tilt toward the open space. A dental bridge can prevent teeth shifting by filling the space with artificial teeth.
- When missing teeth cause empty spaces in your mouth, it may cause your face to look sunken. Dental bridges can restore the shape of the face.
- Losing the front tooth can cause aesthetic concerns. It can make people self-conscious about their smiles. With dental bridges, you can smile confidently.

Restore Your Smile With Dental Bridges
As the name suggests, dental bridges work by bridging the gap left by a missing tooth. The dentist uses the surrounding teeth for support while the dental bridge holds a replacement tooth in the gap. These teeth that are used to support the bridge are referred to as the abutment teeth. They are prepared by reducing the tooth structure around and on top of the tooth to create space for the bridge to fit over the abutment teeth. Dental crowns are placed over the surrounding teeth on either side of the replacement tooth to provide it support.
Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send it to a lab where a custom bridge will be prepared for your teeth. Till then, you will be provided with a temporary bridge to protect the teeth from sensitivity and shifting.
Once your permanent bridge is ready, the dentist will schedule an appointment to replace the temporary bridge. This arrangement helps you in getting an aesthetically pleasing replacement tooth system. This tooth system is highly durable and strong as it is anchored to your teeth.
There are several tooth-replacement systems, such as dental implants, that are commonly used in dentistry to restore a smile. You can figure out the best option for yourself by scheduling an appointment with an experienced dentist in your area.
Dental bridges are durable and usually last for about 10 years if you take good care of them. Talk to your dentist about the care instructions. You can also ask your dentist to show you how to use a floss threader to floss under and around the false tooth (or teeth) in the middle of the bridge. This will help you in keeping the bridge clean.
