What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are a permanent solution to missing teeth which many patients feel is a huge advantage over dentures. A dental bridge not only improves the appearance of your smile, it also improves your ability to speak and chew. Bridges are used to fill the space of a missing tooth with a natural looking substitute.
Dental bridges can be supported by:
- adjacent teeth
- dental implants
- a combination of adjacent teeth and dental implants
With dental bridges you don’t have to worry about the remainder of your teeth being extracted as you might with dentures. Plus, since bridges are anchored in, you won’t have problems eating certain foods and you won’t have to experience the discomfort of slipping prosthetics.
Are There Different Types of Dental Bridges?
Yes, there are three main types of dental bridges.
- Traditional dental bridges
- Cantilever dental bridges
- Resin-bonded dental bridges
Traditional dental bridges are the most common type of dental bridge and consist of two crowns (one for the tooth on either side of the missing tooth) and a pontic.
How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?
Dental bridges are designed to last a lifetime with the proper care and cleaning. There is no reason why a bridge can not last over 15 years. However they are subject to many forces and breakage is possible just like with natural teeth.
