Beyond Gaps: Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a custom-made prosthetic device used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants, creating a “bridge” to restore the appearance and function of your smile. Dental bridges not only enhance your dental aesthetics but also contribute to improved chewing ability and speech. They are a durable and reliable solution, helping you regain confidence and maintain oral health by preventing teeth from shifting and supporting the overall structure of your mouth.


Bridging Smiles, Transforming Lives

Take a closer look at the before and after images and you’ll truly appreciate the incredible difference that dental bridges can make in an individual’s life. The presence of a noticeable gap can often be emotionally challenging. However the transformation achieved with dental bridges is nothing short of astonishing. The bridge also allowed to the patient to stop wearing a denture to replace the missing front teeth.

FAQS About Bridges
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth (pontics) between two existing natural teeth or dental implants.
You may need a dental bridge if you have one or more missing teeth to restore your smile, improve chewing and speaking abilities, prevent shifting of adjacent teeth, and maintain the shape of your face.
The three main types of dental bridges are traditional bridges (anchored to adjacent natural teeth), cantilever bridges (anchored to one adjacent tooth), and implant-supported bridges (anchored to dental implants).
The process of placing a dental bridge involves preparing the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) to support the bridge, taking impressions of the area, and fabricating a custom bridge that fits perfectly. The bridge is then cemented or attached to the abutment teeth or implants.
The procedure is typically performed with local anaesthesia to ensure a painless experience. Some patients may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort, but it is usually temporary.
With proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last for many years, often a decade or longer.
Yes, dental bridges can be used to replace multiple missing teeth by incorporating additional pontics.
Caring for a dental bridge involves maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. Using a floss threader or interdental brush can help clean under the bridge.
Generally, most individuals with missing teeth who have adequate supporting teeth or dental implants are candidates for dental bridges. However, a dental evaluation is essential to determine the best treatment option for each individual.
Dental bridges are often covered by dental insurance, particularly when they are deemed medically necessary for restoring oral function and aesthetics. However, coverage may vary based on the specific insurance plan and policy. It’s best to check with your dental insurance provider to determine your coverage.
