What are the Different Types of Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge, by definition, is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It acts as your new teeth, connecting two permanent structures to fill in gaps. Dental bridges are commonly made from gold or metal foundations with porcelain fused to the base. It ensures that the dental bridge is durable enough to support the normal functions of the mouth.

Three Main Types of Dental Bridges:

  • Traditional Bridge- A traditional bridge is comprised of a false tooth or teeth anchored in place by dental crowns. They are attached securely on either side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Cantilever- The cantilever bridge is similar to a traditional bridge, except that it only uses one permanent structure to support it.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridge- This type of bridge is made from porcelain teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. The metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your teeth.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Bridge?

Assessment

The dentist will examine your mouth and take x-rays of your jaw to gain a full understanding of your oral situation. It will allow your dentist to discuss the best treatment options with you, including the type and design of bridge suitable for your specific case.

Teeth Preparation and Temporary Bridge Placement

On the day of the procedure, your dentist will shape your teeth to accommodate the bridge. Your dentist will then take an impression of your shaped teeth and send it to the lab to construct the bridge. In some cases, a temporary bridge is fitted onto the shaped teeth to protect it from damage while the permanent bridge is still being built.

Permanent Bridge Placement

Once your final bridge is ready, you'll come back to the office for final placement. Your dentist will remove the temporary bridge and clean your teeth thoroughly before placing the final bridge.

Follow Up

Follow up checkups are vital because they help make sure you know what to expect and understand how to take care of your teeth and bridge.

What are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a great way to replace your missing tooth or several missing teeth. It offers so many benefits to its wearers, such as:

  • improving your quality of life.
  • correcting speech issues caused by a missing tooth or several missing teeth.
  • improving your ability to chew, allowing you to enjoy your favorite food again.
  • bringing back the confidence in your smile.

In addition, implant-supported bridges offer even more benefits. The use of dental implants to anchor a dental bridge helps prevent bone loss, encourages bone growth, and prevents premature aging. It's also more stable, secure, and durable than traditional dental bridges.

At Lifeway Dental, we require all our patients to go through an initial consultation session before recommending and performing treatments. This session will allow our dentists to gather all necessary information about your specific oral health disorder and medical history. Based on the results of this session, our dentist will then make an informed decision whether getting a dental bridge is the best option for you or if you are ready to receive the procedure or not.
