A Dental Bridge

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are permanent fixtures held in place by the adjacent teeth on either side of your gap. Many people choose this alternative over dentures and plates, as it is a set fixture that doesn’t move around within your mouth. They come in many different designs and can be made of various materials, offering an excellent solution for many.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF DENTAL BRIDGES?

Adhesive Bridges: Adhesive bridge is a false tooth or multiple teeth fixed to the adjacent teeth, usually with a metal wing.

Cantilever Bridges: These dental bridges are only fixed to one side of the gap, usually with a crown. They do not require multiple fixtures on both sides and is a relatively noninvasive procedure.

Traditional Bridges: You can replace multiple teeth with this method. The dental bridge is fixed to the adjacent teeth with two crowns. This is the most popular option and can be used if you have your natural teeth on either side of the gap.

Implant-Supported Bridges:  These dental bridges are supported by implants rather than crowns. They work similarly to traditional bridges and can replace multiple missing teeth.

 

HOW ARE BRIDGES PLACED?

At Central Hutt Dental, our dental bridge treatments offer an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. If you choose this option, you will require two appointments.

  • We take an impression of the desired dental bridge together with the shade to match your natural teeth.
  • The first appointment also involves preparing your adjacent teeth to fit the bridge.
  • We will place a temporary bridge on your teeth while your permanent one is being made in the laboratory.
  • We cement the dental bridge and give you some tips to keep on top of your oral health during your second appointment!
