Bridges are made to replace missing teeth. They can replace one or multiple teeth next to each other. Unlike partial dentures, a bridge is permanently set in your mouth.
There are many bridge options available to remedy your restoration needs relative to your specific oral condition. Traditional bridges are the most popular types of dental bridges for restoring lost teeth. They can be used when you have natural teeth or implants on either side of the space left by your missing tooth. They are usually small, lightweight, and provide excellent chewing comfort, by re-distributing your normal bite force compromised by your missing teeth. Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit.
