Bridges

Why is it beneficial to restore missing teeth?

  • Firstly, gaps affect the aesthetic of the smile and you may feel self-conscious when smiling or speaking in public.
  • Secondly, gaps can affect oral health - missing teeth result in the neighbouring teeth moving out of position and can lead to oral diseases.
  • Finally, replacing missing teeth restores function to the mouth - without teeth, it is difficult to speak and eat correctly. Dental bridges can be created from a variety of materials like precious, non-precious metals and ceramic materials. In many cases, bridges are made from porcelain or ceramic fused to metal so that the bridge is strong but looks natural.

Are dental bridges expensive?

The cost depends on the material it is made from. Your dentist can discuss fees with you. A dental bridge may seem expensive but it will last for many years.

How should I care for my dental bridge?

You will need to care for your bridge, just as you care for your natural teeth. Your dentist will provide details on how to keep your bridge clean and will also check your bridge when you have regular dental check-ups.

 

There are special devices, which can be used to clean a dental bridge. Your dentist or dental hygienist can provide you with information about products on the market.

Are there different detal bridges?

Yes, there are three main dental bridges.

  1. A traditional fixed bridge is composed of a false tooth that is fused onto two crowns.
  2. If you have a missing front tooth you may be advised to have a Maryland bridge.
  3. Cantilever bridges are frequently used when the gap is surrounded by healthy teeth on one side only.

Your dentist will explain the different options and advise you which is most appropriate in your situation.
