Bridging the Gap in your teeth with a Dental Bridge

A Introduction to Dental Bridges

This section of About Cosmetic Dentistry will help you to learn more about dental bridges. You will have
an idea about it and how the procedure is performed,
what dental bridges cost.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth
can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech
impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.

Dental bridges are false teeth, which are anchored onto neighbouring teeth in order to replace one or more
missing teeth. The false tooth is known as a pontic and is fused in between two crowns that serve as
anchors by attaching to the teeth on each side of the false tooth, thereby bridging them together. This is
also known as a fixed bridge.These false teeth called pontics can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a
combination of these materials.This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges
cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures. Dental bridges are supported
by natural teeth or implants.

In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth, a cantilever bridge may be used.
Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Bridges can reduce your
risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment
to serious oral hygiene, then they can last for as many as ten years or more.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

Bridges can:

  • Restore smile in your face
  • Restore your ability to chew and speak properly
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Are you a candidate for dental bridges?

If you have good oral hygiene practice but missing teeth, you should discuss this procedure with your dentist. If spaces are left unfilled, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Bridges are mostly recommended when there are one or more teeth missing that can effect.
  • Your smile and appearance.
  • Your speech.
  • Your bite (as a result of adjacent teeth leaning into the space and altering the way the upper and lower teeth bite together).
  • The shape of your face.
  • The rates of gum disease and tooth decay due to food accumulated in the gap.
Nearly everyone who has one or more missing teeth is a candidate for a dental bridge. However, the difference between proper and improper oral hygiene is, generally, what determines the success of the dental bridge.

How long will Dental Bridges last?

Dental bridges can last 10-15 years, provided that you maintain good dental hygiene and eating habits.

What is the Procedure of Dental Bridges?

You won't be able to get dentures or a bridge in one visit. It is mostly accomplished in two appointments.

In the first appointment:
  • The potential need for additional procedures (such as fillings or root canals) in one or two of the adjoining teeth.
  • The artistic technique of the dentist and lab technician.
  • The location of the dentist.
  • The coverage provided by your dental insurance.
  • The type of material used in the bridge.
  • The preparation of teeth involved in the bridge procedure.
Dental Bridges can range in price from $1000 to $3000 per tooth based on the aforementioned factors. In the case of a Maryland type bridge, costs range from $250. to $550. for each attaching wing and $600. to $1200. for each false tooth or pontic.

What are the Advantages of Dental Bridges?

  • They are very much natural in appearance by restoring your smile.
  • Two appointments with the dentist are generally require only
  • They have a good life period, lasting for 10-15 years, providing you maintain good dental hygiene.
  • They improve your appearance, bite issues by distributing the forces in your bite and speech problems occurring as a result of missing teeth.
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

What are the disadvantages of Dental Bridges?

  • For a few weeks teeth become mildly sensitive to extreme temperatures.
  • They require healthy tooth tissue from neighboring teeth to be prepared.
  • If proper hygiene is not maintained your teeth and gums are vulnerable to infection as a result of accumulation of bacteria due to the food acids.

How to take care of your Dental Bridges?

The following recommendations will help to eliminate, or reduce, any oral health problems while your teeth bonded by a bridge:
  • Brush your teeth carefully after every meal with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush, as food may become lodged causing the gums and teeth to become infected. This may lead to further complications resulting in the loss of the bridge.
  • Floss daily. Your dentist, or other oral health specialist, may recommend using a floss threaded for hard-to -reach places between the bridge and its adjacent teeth.
  • Have your teeth cleaned every six months by an oral health professional.
  • Limit your sugar and starch intake, as debris left behind from these types of foods may turn into damaging acids, which, in addition to promoting plaque formation, may also be harmful to teeth and gums.
  • Avoid hard and/or sticky snacks. This includes foods such as popcorn, hard or chew candy, caramel, and/or nuts.
  • Eat a balanced and nutritious diet for good general and dental health.
