If you’re missing teeth, dental bridges could be the perfect solution. They attach artificial teeth to natural, adjacent teeth. This can help make it easier to eat and speak, while also protecting your oral health.
There are two major types of bridges:
While removable bridges can be removed and cleaned, we often recommend fixed bridges, since they provide more stability.
Before we can place the bridge, we first have to remove some enamel and dentin from the adjacent teeth. We’ll then need to take impressions and send them to the lab in order to ensure the bridge matches the opposing teeth and enables the correct bite.
Bridges can be made of:
Sometimes a combination of these materials is used. Once the bridge is made, we typically attach crowns to the adjacent natural teeth. After that, we can apply the bridge.
It’s important to maintain good home oral care habits once you get your bridge. This ensures that the surrounding teeth stay clean, which means they’ll be able to support your bridge for years to come.
