What is a dental bridge?
Much like dental implants , a bridge is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth and/or teeth. A bridge uses abutment teeth to anchor false teeth to the existing jaw and tooth structure. Dental bridges can be formed from a variety of materials, predominantly: porcelain, composite resin, gold, alloy, metal, or a combination .
When do I need a dental bridge?
When a tooth is missing it causes the surrounding teeth to shift and become misshapen or crooked, leading to structural imbalance and a bad bite . This can also result in gum disease . If you have a tooth missing, whether it's due to a tooth extraction or other conditions such as periodontal disease, trauma, or tooth decay, then a dental bridge may be the best option to prevent further damage.
Why should I get a dental bridge?
There are a number of benefits to choosing a bridge in restorative dentistry: Realigns the natural structure of teeth and jaw; Holds existing teeth in position; Restores a natural and balanced bite
How is a dental bridge fitted?
Firstly, impressions must be taken of the teeth and a temporary bridge fitted to retain function during the fabrication process. Once the bridge teeth are fabricated, the tooth or teeth that the bridge will be placed over must be reduced, so that the bridge can fit comfortably over the top. It may require multiple dentist visits to ensure that the bridge will be of a satisfactory fit . Once a comfortable fit is achieved, the bridge will be permanently cemented in place.
What are the different types of dental bridges?
Traditional bridges are made from either porcelain or ceramics and are the most widely used form in dentistry. A traditional bridge involves placing a pontic tooth in the space where the missing tooth once was, wedged in between two crowns on either side. Sometimes there is only one tooth next to the missing tooth. In this case, a cantilever bridge will be used. A resin-bonded bridge (Maryland bonded bridge) is bonded to existing teeth and is comprised of plastic teeth and gums, held in place via a metal frame.,
A dental bridge is a prosthesis which is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A dental bridge is similar to a crown, but consists of at least 2 or 3 teeth, while a crown covers a single tooth. The bridge is cemented over the top of the teeth either side of a gap, so that the pontic (the prosthetic tooth in the middle) is held in place. Recommended for Closing the gap between teeth Time requirements Average length of stay abroad 1 weeks. The time needed depends on how quickly the laboratory technician can create the bridge.

A dental bridge is used to "bridge" the gap between teeth. Time requirements Average length of stay abroad 1 weeks.

The time needed depends on how quickly the laboratory technician can create the bridge.
In order to prepare for a dental bridge, the teeth either side of the gap are reduced in size so that the bridge can be placed over the top, like a cap.,
At the first appointment, the teeth will be prepared, and an impression is taken so that the final bridge can be created in the laboratory. The dentist may create a temporary bridge to wear while the final bridge is being produced. Once the final bridge has been made, it is fitted and cemented into place. Materials Bridges are available in a range of materials, but are most commonly rendered from porcelain fused to metal (PFM).
These are mostly tooth-colored, but offer the added strength of a metal base. As the metal can sometimes be visible, some people prefer full porcelain or zirconia, especially for front teeth. Anesthesia Local anesthetic (usually). Procedure duration The Dental Bridge takes 2 to 3 hours. Usually 2 appointments are required. At the first appointment, the dentist will prepare the teeth and take a mould. The bridge will be custom-made in a laboratory (patients should ask how long this will take). At the next appointment the bridge will be cemented into place. The dental bridge is cemented to the teeth either side of the gap.,
Post procedure care Patients should avoid eating on the bridge straight away. Certain foods, such as hard or chewy sweets, should be avoided as the bridge could become loose.
Possible discomfort Patients may suffer with tooth sensitivity when exposed to very hot or cold food or drinks following the procedure. Patients may also experience a dull ache after the bridge has been fitted. Both symptoms should subside after a few weeks.,
