I came here because my prior dentist was not getting persistent stains off my teeth. Julianna and Karen were incredible! So friendly and thorough. My teeth are spotless and white —this is what leaving the dentist should feel like! So happy I switched to this practice.

Curious To Know More About Dental Bridges?

If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge is a common treatment option that can replace the missing tooth by bridging the gap. In this article, we’ll explore what dental bridges are, their benefits and drawbacks, the different types of dental bridges, and who might be a good candidate for this treatment.

The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can cause more than just cosmetic issues. It can lead to difficulties in talking and chewing, cause teeth adjacent to the gap to shift, and may even lead to gum disease and jaw joint disorders like TMJ. Therefore, it’s crucial to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible.

Traditional Bridges

Traditional bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. They involve creating a crown for the abutment tooth on either side of the missing tooth, with a replacement tooth (pontic) in between. Traditional bridges are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramic.

Cantilever Bridges

In areas of the mouth that are under less stress, such as the front teeth, a cantilever dental bridge may be used. It’s a bridge where the false tooth is only supported on one side.

Maryland Bonded Bridges

The Maryland bridge technique uses metal or resin “wings” on each side of the bridge that are bonded to the existing teeth. A Maryland bonded bridge is also called a resin-bonded bridge. The main benefit of this type of dental bridge is that healthy teeth either side need either minimal or no preparation.

Implant-Supported Bridges

If you’re missing more than one tooth, an implant-supported bridge may be the most suitable option. This technique involves the placement of two or more dental implants with space between them. These implants serve as the abutments (anchors) for the permanently cemented bridgework. Dental implants provide a solid support for the bridge.

Candidates for Dental Bridges

Most people who are missing one or more natural teeth are suitable candidates for dental bridges. The type of bridge that is most appropriate depends primarily on which tooth or teeth are missing, as well as the health and structural integrity of the adjacent teeth.

Candidates for Implant-Supported Bridges

Implants go directly inside the jawbone. Therefore, patients who are considering an implant-supported bridge must have enough healthy bone volume to support the posts. Our dentist will conduct a complete examination to determine a patient’s candidacy for an implant-supported bridge.
