What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. It helps maintain the shape of your face and the alignment of your bite.
Why might I need a dental bridge?
Dental bridges can:
- Restore your smile and the ability to properly chew and speak.
- Maintain the shape of your face.
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
What is the procedure for getting a bridge?
The procedure typically involves two visits. During the first visit, the teeth on either side of the gap are prepared to serve as anchors. Impressions are taken to create a custom bridge. A temporary bridge is placed until the permanent one is ready. During the second visit, the permanent bridge is checked for fit and cemented into place.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to prolong the life of your bridge. Using specialized floss or interdental brushes can help clean areas under and around the bridge.
