What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a custom-made prosthetic created from materials like ceramic and porcelain. It’s held in place by abutment teeth on either side of the gap, effectively closing the gaps in your smile. The ideal candidate for a dental bridge is someone who’s in great health, has strong teeth free of decay, and is missing one to four consecutive teeth. Since the materials used to make this prosthetic are color-matched to your enamel, it’ll blend seamlessly with your remaining teeth once in place.
Types of Dental Bridges
First and foremost, you’ll have a consultation with our team at Ocean Oaks Dental Group. We’ll conduct an oral examination, review your medical history, and ask about your smile goals to determine which type of dental bridge is right for you. Based on our findings, we’ll recommend one of the following options:
A traditional dental bridge is anchored to your mouth with crowns. It’s the best solution to replace one or more missing teeth that are right next to each other. Keep in mind that your natural teeth will need to be altered in preparation for your prosthetic.
If you want a solution that provides unmatched stability and durability, you may want to consider an implant bridge. This prosthetic is secured to your mouth using two dental implants instead of crowns. Each implant is placed on either side of the gap in your smile. Once it’s fused with the jawbone via osseointegration, we’ll attach the dental bridge to complete your grin. The best part is that this method of tooth replacement doesn’t require any alteration of your natural teeth!
