What are they?

Implants, bridges and dentures

Dental bridges offer a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth by using the support of nearby natural teeth or the support of implants. Dental bridges offer a fixed solution to restore your smile and your ability to speak, bite and chew properly, thus maintaining the shape of your face and preventing your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

What does the dentist do?

There are several stages in making a bridge:

  • Your dentist uses soft, moldable material to take impressions of your mouth. A dental technician makes exact plaster models of your upper and lower teeth and gums, which show how your teeth bite together.
  • The teeth which will support the bridge are prepared so that the bridge is not too bulky.
  • Another impression is taken of the teeth and any gaps and the dental technician uses this to make the bridge. A plastic temporary bridge or temporary crown may be fitted in the meantime.
  • At our final visit, the dentist will check that the bridge fits, make minor adjustments and then fix it permanently in place.

Your dentist or hygienist will show you the bet way of keeping your new bridge clean.

What are the benefits?

A bridge almost lets you forget that you have missing teeth:

  • It can improve the way you look, bite, chew and speak.
  • The teeth can be matched to the color of your own teeth.
  • A bridge can last many years if kept clean and if there is no accidental damage.
  • Natural teeth are protected from wear and tear, and from moving or tilting out of line which could cause your teeth to bite together incorrectly.

The alternative to a bridge will probably be a removable partial denture. The dentist will explain the chances or success with a bridge. If the supporting teeth are not strong enough a denture might be a better treatment choice. If teeth have just been extracted, a denture might be made first, with a bridge fitted later when the gum has healed.
