What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration that fits within the gap left behind by your missing teeth. There is one dental crown on each end, and between them one or several replacement teeth are supported. The custom-made dental crowns are each affixed to the remaining teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. The custom teeth between them will fill the space seamlessly thanks to their precise fit, effectively “bridging” the gap.
Types of Dental Bridges
Thanks to modern advancements in dentistry, you now have more options than ever when it comes to replacing your missing teeth. At Park Street Dental, we’re proud to offer both traditional dental bridges and implant bridges. Each comes with their own pros and cons, so we’ll help you determine which option is best for you during your consultation.
Traditional Dental Bridges
Traditional bridges are the more cost-effective solution compared to implant bridges. Additionally, they offer a far faster and less-invasive treatment: in as little as two quick and easy appointments, we can complete your smile with a dental bridge. However, it is important to note that the teeth supporting the dental bridge will always need to be covered with a restoration, and that your bridge will need to be replaced every 10-15 years or so.
Implant bridges do not rely on your remaining healthy teeth for support. Instead, the bridge is supported by one or two small titanium posts called dental implants that are inserted directly into your jawbone. This allows them to essentially replace the roots of your missing teeth and provides your dental bridge unmatched stability as well as a myriad of other important benefits. While the process is lengthier, more expensive, and more involved, the results have the potential to last for a lifetime.
The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge
Replacing your missing teeth is about much more than just appearances. When you fill in your smile with a dental bridge, you can reap benefits like:
- Preventing dental drift, which can lead to enamel damage and a misaligned bite
- Improved ability to eat a wide, varied diet and speak clearly
- Support for facial muscles to prevent sunken, aged cheeks
- More confidence in your smile, and therefore confidence in yourself
