Dental Bridge

Dental Bridge

In a fully functioning and healthy mouth, upper and lower forces are balanced and equal. However, this balance is quickly lost when we lose a tooth.

Here are a few things that can happen when you lose a tooth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A Dental Bridge is when two or more crowns are connected together to replace one or more missing teeth. The Dental Bridge will be placed over your natural teeth which will need to be prepared to receive the Bridge. Unlike Dentures, Dental Bridges are permanent fixtures that look and feel natural and do not have to be removed.

Types of Bridges

1.   Cantilever Bridges – This is when only one tooth is used to support the missing tooth (as seen above)

2.   Maryland Bridges – These are considered the conservative option compared to conventional Bridges – two wings are used on adjacent teeth to support the missing tooth – minimal to no preparation required

3.   Traditional Bridges – This is when both teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are prepared to accept the Bridge. (see above)
