What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a traditional form of tooth replacement that is made from a pair of dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth called pontics. In order to create the bridge, the pontics will be suspended between the crowns. Then our team can attach the crowns to two of your natural teeth (or two dental implants) to completely fill the space between them. Your new teeth will be made out of lifelike materials, making them virtually indistinguishable compared to the rest of your smile.
Types of Dental Bridges
Should you get a traditional dental bridge, or would an implant bridge suit your needs better? Answering this question will be one of our goals when you visit our office to ask about having a dental bridge placed. We can go over the pros and cons of both types of dental bridges in more detail during your appointment, but in the meantime here’s a basic overview of what you need to know.
Traditional Dental Bridge
A traditional dental bridge rests on the teeth that are adjacent to the gap in your smile. Naturally, we will need to examine your mouth in order to make sure that said teeth are in good enough shape to support a traditional bridge.
When multiple teeth in a row are missing, two dental implants can be inserted into the gap so that they can support a dental bridge. There are many advantages to getting a bridge supported by dental implant posts, not the least of which is the fact that we won’t have to remove any enamel from your remaining natural teeth.
The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge
If you ask our team why you should have a dental bridge placed, they’re likely to mention the following benefits:
- A dental bridge can help maintain the alignment of your smile by stopping your natural teeth from drifting out of place.
- Filling in empty space in your smile with a beautiful dental bridge can have a positive impact on your self-esteem.
- Taking care of a dental bridge is easy, and the prosthesis can often last for 10 or even 15 years.
