Dental bridges are a common restorative dental treatment that can be used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) that are anchored in place by dental crowns that are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge is custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement for missing teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of a false tooth (or teeth) that is attached to adjacent teeth using dental crowns.

With proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last for 10 to 15 years or more. However, the lifespan of a bridge can vary depending on factors such as oral hygiene, diet, and the material used to make the bridge.

The three main types of dental bridges are traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges. Traditional bridges are the most common type and involve attaching the false tooth to adjacent teeth using dental crowns. Cantilever bridges are used when there is only one adjacent tooth to support the bridge, while Maryland bridges use a metal or porcelain framework to support the false tooth.

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves local anesthesia to numb the area around the teeth being worked on. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Yes, a dental bridge can be removed or replaced if necessary. However, this will typically require additional dental work to prepare the teeth and ensure a proper fit for the new bridge.

As with any dental procedure, there are some risks associated with getting a dental bridge. These can include infection, nerve damage, and damage to adjacent teeth. However, these risks are relatively rare and can be minimized by choosing a qualified and experienced dentist.
