Please read the below information to find out how dental bridges can be a beneficial cosmetic dental procedure for you.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Missing teeth can cause major damages, such as:

  • A shift in the alignment of your teeth
  • Increased risk of periodontal disease
  • Increased risk of tooth decay
  • Loss of adjacent teeth
  • Speech disorders
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)

What Are Dental Bridges?

Like dental implants, dental bridges are used to replace a missing tooth, except bridges are supported by the teeth on either side called abutment teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Bridges?

Dental bridges have the ability to dramatically restore your smile, as well as improving your ability to chew and speak. In a recent study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, dental bridges were shown to reduce the risk of losing teeth that are adjacent to a missing tooth. In addition, this cosmetic dental procedure can help prevent your jaw and face from changing shape and becoming disoriented, as they tend to do when a person has missing teeth.

What Types of Bridges Are There?

  • Cantilever bridges are used to replace a tooth that does not have supporting teeth on both sides of the affected area.
  • Maryland bonded bridges include artificial teeth and gums, and are held in place by a metal frame.
  • Traditional bridges are the most common, and literally bridge the gap of an empty tooth space by securing a false tooth using crowns on the teeth on either side.

How Are Dental Bridges Placed?

Installing a dental bridge is a simple and easy procedure that is commonly completed in two visits. First, your dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge. If you are, your teeth will need to be prepared by reshaping or reconstructing any badly decayed or damaged areas. Afterwards, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which is then sent off to a lab where it is cast into a mold, and give you a temporary bridge to wear. On your second visit, this mold will be fitted to your teeth, and any necessary corrections or adjustments will be made on that same visit.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

Typically, dental bridges can last from 8-15 years. However, brushing and flossing regularly can help maintain a good oral hygiene and longevity of your bridges.

Are Bridges Covered By My Dental Insurance?

Dental bridges are typically partially covered by insurers. Ask our friendly staff to find out exactly how much you will have to pay out of pocket.
