WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that is cemented on to teeth or implants, adjacent to missing teeth. Missing teeth can lead to movement and shifting of other teeth and lead to an imbalance in the bite.

IS AN IMPLANT BETTER THAN A BRIDGE?

It is always better to conserve natural teeth whenever possible, so if adequate bone is present for the implant, not considering the expense, an Implant would be a better choice placing a bridge.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF DENTAL BRIDGES?

Traditional Bridge -This type of bridge anchors to teeth that are adjacent to the missing teeth. They must be shaped and prepared for what is basically a crown that connects to a prosthetic tooth that replaces the teeth that are missing.

Implant Supported Bridge – This type of bridge can be attached to anywhere from 2 to 6 or more implants, depending on how many teeth are being replaced, whether its three or the entire arch.

The lifespan of a bridge is related to many factors such as proper placement of the bridge, patient care, para functional habits, proper use or selection of materials.
