Dental Bridge

Close up of dental bridge model in front of blurred blue backgroundWhen a tooth is missing and an implant cannot be placed, a dental bridge is used to maintain the space and restore full chewing function. A bridge attaches an artificial tooth to two adjacent natural teeth in one continuous unit in order to fill the space caused by a missing tooth/teeth. This is accomplished by preparing the adjacent teeth for dental crowns and having a dental lab fabricate one continuous unit with two crowns and a fake tooth/teeth in the middle.

Bridges are natural looking, have a shorter turnaround than dental implants to replace a missing tooth, and are not removable like a partial denture.

While bridges are effective solutions, there are considerations of which to be aware. Adjacent teeth are altered to accommodate a bridge. The teeth will be connected by the continuous bridge so if one tooth has an issue, the entire bridge will need to be replaced. Oral hygiene is more challenging with a bridge particularly with flossing so you must be vigilant in your homecare.
