Dental Bridges

Definition of a Dental Bridge

Dental Bridges are false teeth that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are anchored into place using an implant or are cemented into place using anchor teeth on either side of the gap. Unlike dentures, bridges do not come out and are considered to be a permanent dental appliance.

There are several different materials that can be used to create your bridge. It will depend on the location of the bridge and the function. For instance, chewing teeth will need a different material than tearing teeth. No matter what material is chosen, the color will be matched to your natural teeth for a beautiful smile. Affordable Dentist Near Me will work with you to find the right material so that your smile will be beautiful, the teeth will function appropriately, and the cost will be affordable.

3 Reasons for Needing a dental Bridge

3 Reasons for Needing a Bridge

Empty spaces left by missing teeth cause the rest of the teeth in your mouth to shift or rotate. This will cause:

  1. An uneven bite
  2. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) from imbalanced chewing
  3. Gum disease

Having Your Dental Bridges Made

In order to have your bridge made, the dentist will first need to work on the anchor teeth on either side of your tooth gap. He will do this by reducing the teeth so that the bridge can be placed over those anchor teeth. If you are having an implant, that procedure will happen first.

Next, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth using a mold. The impression goes to our lab so that the bridge can be made according to the doctor’s specifications.

After the impression, the dentist will place a temporary bridge into your mouth. Creating the permanent bridge takes several days, so the temporary will help you chew and function normally until the permanent bridge is created.

When the permanent bridge is ready, the temporary bridge is removed and the bridge is put in. The bridge will either be cemented to your anchor teeth or attached to your implant. Bridges are permanent and typically cause few problems.

Taking Care of Your Dental Bridge

Bridges are made to last forever. However, dental bridges can become loose due to gum disease or bone loss. To avoid these problems, you can do the following:

  1. Brush and floss daily
  2. See the dentist regularly
  3. Avoid eating hard foods
