Introduction

dental bridge concept

Dental bridges are a restorative dental treatment designed to replace missing teeth. They consist of a pontic (an artificial tooth) that is anchored to one or more adjacent teeth, called abutments. 

Dental bridges can be a great option for those who are missing one or more teeth and are looking for  replacement teeth, helping to restore oral function and improve the appearance of your smile.

Types

There are four types of dental bridges available:

  1. Traditional Bridges – The most common type of dental bridge. The pontic is held in place by dental crowns that are cemented to the abutment teeth.
  2. Cantilever Bridges – Similar to traditional bridges, but the pontic is held in place by only one abutment tooth instead of two.
  3. Maryland Bridges – A conservative option that involves bonding the pontic to adjacent teeth using metal or porcelain wings.
  4. Implant-Supported Bridges – The most stable and durable option, which involves surgically placing dental implants to support the pontic.

Who Needs Bridges?

Dental bridges may be recommended for individuals who are missing one or more teeth. Bridges can help to restore oral function and improve the appearance of your smile. 

Bridges can also help to prevent other oral health issues, such as gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

Preparation

Before getting a dental bridge, your dentist will perform a thorough dental exam, including x-rays and impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create a custom-made dental bridge that is tailored to fit your unique needs. 

If you are getting an implant-supported bridge, your dentist may need to perform a surgical procedure to place the dental implants.

Procedure

During the dental bridges procedure, the patient can expect to receive local anesthesia to numb the area around the teeth being prepared for the bridge. 

This is done to ensure the patient is comfortable during the procedure. If the patient is anxious or has a low pain threshold, the dentist may also offer sedation to help them relax.

Once the teeth are numb, the dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. This will involve shaping the teeth to allow for the placement of the dental bridge. 

After the teeth have been prepared, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth to create a mold. This mold will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom bridge will be made to fit your teeth.

At the second appointment, the dentist will fit the dental bridge onto the prepared teeth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit. 

The bridge is typically cemented in place using dental adhesive. Over time, the patient may need to return to the dentist’s office for adjustments or repairs to the dental bridge.

Common concerns about discomfort during the procedure can be addressed by the dental practice through the use of local anesthesia and sedation. 

The dentist will also work to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure by providing breaks and explaining each step of the process. 

After the procedure, the patient may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. 

The dental practice may also provide additional guidance on caring for the dental bridge to minimize discomfort and ensure the longevity of the restoration.

Benefits

There are many benefits to getting a dental bridge, including:

  1. Improved oral functionDental bridges can help to restore your ability to chew and speak properly, making it easier to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate with confidence.
  2. Improved appearance – Dental bridges can help to restore the natural shape and appearance of your smile, improving your overall confidence and self-esteem.
  3. Improved oral health – Dental bridges can help to prevent other oral health issues, such as gum disease and TMJ disorder, by restoring proper oral function and alignment.
  4. Long-lasting results – With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last for many years, providing a stable and durable solution for missing teeth.

Aftercare

After getting a dental bridge, it is important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the longevity of your bridge. 

This includes regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard or sticky foods, and scheduling regular follow-up appointments with your dentist. 

Your dentist may also recommend additional dental treatments, such as dental cleanings or fluoride treatments, to maintain your oral health.

Takeaway

If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can be a great option for restoring oral function and improving the appearance of your smile. 

With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last for many years, providing a long-lasting and durable solution for missing teeth.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.
