FIXED AND REMOVABLE BRIDGES

Dental bridges are a form of restoration which can be used to replace missing teeth. The loss of teeth can cause a variety of problems, including impaired speech, difficulty chewing, an increased risk of oral health complications and it can also affect the aesthetics of the smile. It is always best to fill tooth gaps to ward off such problems.

Types Of Dental Bridges

There are different types of dental bridges, which include:

Quick Contact

A traditional fixed bridge is comprised of a false tooth (known as a pontic) which is fused to two crowns. Traditional fixed bridges are anchored by the neighbouring teeth and can also be supported by dental implants.
A Maryland bridge is often used to replace a missing front tooth and is anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap using metal bands. This type of bridge is used when the neighbouring teeth are strong and healthy.
A cantilever bridge is used when there are healthy teeth on one side of the gap. The bridge is anchored by one or two healthy teeth on one side of the missing tooth.
Bridges can be made from ceramic materials and precious metals. Most people choose ceramic bridges because they are more aesthetically pleasing.

The Procedure

The procedure to fit a dental bridge is relatively straightforward. The bridge will be custom-made for the individual based on impressions taken of the teeth. Before the bridge is fitted, the teeth are trimmed and prepared. Once the bridge has been fabricated at the laboratory and returned, it will then be fixed into place using dental cement. We always ensure your happiness with the fit and look of the bridge before we fix it into place.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

Dental bridges should last up to 15 years if they are well looked-after. You will need to maintain a good oral hygiene routine and keep the bridge as clean as possible to reduce the risk of infection and decay.
