What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeth, unlike a standalone implant; the missing tooth is replaced by a false tooth that is attached and supported by the two surrounding teeth, creating a bridge like structure. It is usual that the two surrounding teeth to the gap are already crowned teeth; however this is not always necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bridges

A few visits to the dentist are required before the completed bridge can be fitted, these visits will consist of preparing the surrounding teeth to the gap by taking x-rays to check the roots of the teeth are healthy, if so the teeth will then be reshaped to make room for the crowns, a digital impression will usually be taken at this point to make an impression of your teeth in order for a bridge to be made in a dental laboratory.  It usually takes 2 weeks for a bridge to be completed; therefore in the interim a temporary bridge would be fitted.

Bridges are considered permanent in the sense that they are not removable; however unlike an implant they do have a lifespan of approximately 5-10years depending on how well they are cared for and if you maintain good oral hygiene.
