What are bridges?
Get results you love
Dental implants are a good solution for the replacement of missing teeth. They are not always the right option for all patients however. When you look at a dental bridge vs. implant, the decision will be based upon the unique needs of each patient. Bridges are just what they sound like. They are dental prosthetics that bridge the gaps left behind by missing teeth. Fixed dental bridges can restore dental health, function and strength to the mouth.Unlike their counterparts of the past, modern dental bridges offer as many aesthetic benefits as they do oral health benefits.Bridges can be made from any number of materials. They could include porcelain, Zirconia, and porcelain fused to metal.
What is the process of being fitted for bridges?
There is a bit of preparation that needs to be done before you can be fitted with your dental bridge. If you have healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth or teeth, your dentist will prepare them to be the solid foundation for the bridge. If you do not have healthy teeth, or sufficient teeth to offer support for the bridge, then dental implants may be the solution that works best for you. The implant will act as an anchor for the tooth bridge.
Dental bridges offer a number of advantages. They can help to improve your bite, while reducing wear and tear on your surrounding healthy teeth. They can help to keep your healthy teeth from shifting around in your mouth. Very often teeth will move into those spaces created by missing teeth. This can create a host of additional dental concerns that could have been quite simple to prevent.
With proper care and treatment, bridges can last up to a full decade. Bridgework should be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. At your routine checkup appointments your dentist can inspect your bridgework for any cracks or other damage.
A Dental Bridge can be a more budget friendly option over a mouth full of implants, and can work well with both your healthy natural teeth and selectively placed implants. They are a good option to consider when you are in need of replacing multiple teeth in your mouth.
