Single Tooth Dental Bridge

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are crowns used to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures, bridges will use your remaining adjacent teeth for their support structure. This generally means that the support teeth will need to be in optimal health to ensure the longevity of the bridge.

Bridges are fixed dental appliances used to replace one or more missing teeth. Teeth will need to be missing in the same location for bridges to be effective. This dental restoration is traditionally made of a porcelain crown fused to metal. The porcelain creates a more natural appearance that mimics the look of your actual teeth.

Preparation is key when creating and fitting bridges. Because these use your existing teeth to support its critical that the dental restoration not only fits perfectly but that it is shaped to match your remaining teeth, an impression of your teeth and recontouring will be needed to ensure exact fitment. Typically, a patient’s bridge can be fitted, created in as little as two days.

Is a Bridge Better Than an Implant?

Depending on the patient’s specific dental situation, bridges can be a better choice than implants. They require less time for recovery and healing, are more affordable, and can prevent damage and further alignment issues. Each restorative treatment has its benefits, knowing if bridges are right for you starts with a consultation.

How Many Teeth Can Be on a Bridge?

Bridges are very versatile. They can be used to replace two, three, four, or more teeth as long as there are teeth available to support the crowns. For bridges that lack the support of your natural teeth, dental implants can be used.

How Long Does a Dental Bridge Last?

How long your bridge will last depends on the wearer and how well they care for the dental device and teeth. Most patients can expect their bridges to last 5 to 15 years without issue. To get the maximum lifespan from your dental bridge at-home brushing and flossing and visits to your dentist are recommended.

Can I Chew Gum With a Dental Bridge?

We recommend that those with any type of permanent orthodontic such as bridges, and crowns, to avoid chewing gum. Chewing gum can cause fixtures to loosen or to create decay, which could lead to a bridge replacement. Likewise, you should also avoid overly chewy or sticky foods, including fruit snacks and candies.
