What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a type of restoration that’s used to replace one or several consecutive missing teeth. This can be up to four teeth in a row. The bridge is composed of two crowns and a number of replacement teeth known as “pontics.” The crowns are anchored on the adjacent teeth or implants depending on the type of bridge you end up with. Bridges can be made out of a variety of different materials, but porcelain is usually ideal because of its durability and natural appearance.

Types of Dental Bridges

If it’s determined that you make a good candidate for a dental bridge, there are two different types you could end up with. Here’s what each one entails:

Traditional Bridge

If you still have healthy teeth on each side of the gap that needs to be filled in, a traditional bridge is ideal. The teeth that support crowns are know as “abutment teeth,” and they need to be altered slightly for the bridge to fit properly. This type of bridge can be placed in just a few visits and is typically more affordable than its implant alternative.

Implant Bridge

Dental implant bridges can be used when there are three or more missing teeth in a row. Instead of being placed over the abutment teeth, the crowns are placed on the titanium posts that will merge with the jawbone and act as artificial tooth roots. Implant bridges last much longer than traditional bridges on average and help to prevent bone loss from occurring thanks to missing teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

A traditional dental bridge is a relatively simple and cost-effective option when it comes to replacing missing teeth. It provides strength and stability for chewing and speaking, helps to support the shape of the face, and prevents your natural teeth from shifting out of place and leading to misalignment issues in the future.
