What are Dental Bridges?

When considering replacing missing teeth, there are a number of options available. This includes dentures, dental implants and dental bridges. A dental bridge is a tooth shaped fixed dental appliance which connects the teeth either side of the missing tooth / teeth.

Whilst dental implants are fast becoming the gold standard to replace missing teeth, dental bridges can be utilised where implants cannot physically be placed for instance if there is not enough bone, or there are some medical conditions which would advise against implant treatment.

Bridges are also much lest costly than implants and can be used as a temporary measure if implants are to be considered in the future.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are two broad categories of dental bridges:

Resin retained

These type of bridges are much preferred nowadays due to the fact they are less invasive and destructive to the adjacent teeth. Very little if any adjustment of the adjacent tooth is required.

The prosthetic tooth which is replacing the space has a metallic wing attached to it. This wing has a specially coated surface which will help create a stronger bond once cemented to the tooth adjacent to the space

Conventional

The advent of dental implants has rendered conventional bridges a less popular choice to replace missing teeth, as this type of bridge requires the teeth either side of the space to be adjusted quite heavily. Once these teeth have been adjusted, a the bridge then seats on the teeth either side of space which then closes the missing space.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth placed where a tooth is missing. This artificial tooth is then attached to the teeth either side. A crown is used to restore the strength and function of a tooth which has lost its tooth structure, has become weak or is liable to fracture.

Dental implants are the gold standard choice when replacing a missing tooth. However, bridges can be a useful alternative in the meantime whilst the area is healing for implants. In addition, they have been proven to be a very useful alternative for patients who cannot have implants due to financial, medical or personal reasons. 

Not always, but quite often missing teeth can cause the adjacent teeth to over-erupt and drift, this can make the teeth tip, lead to oral hygiene and bite problems. Whilst this should be monitored with your dentist regularly, replacing a missing tooth should be considered, along with the risks of not having it replaced.
