What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge offers one of the simplest and most effective ways to replace a missing tooth or a few in a row. It works by positioning two dental crowns on either side of the gap in your smile and attaching them to additional prosthetic teeth to close the space. Bridges not only help improve the appearance of the smile, but they also even out the bite and prevent the other teeth from shifting out of place (which happens often after tooth loss).
Types of Dental Bridges
Dr. Mohr offers different types of bridges that can suit the unique needs and wants of each patient. While any bridge you receive from him will be high quality and designed just for you, the biggest differentiating factor will be whether or not it is supported by dental implants. Which kind is right for you? Let’s see how they compare:
Traditional Dental Bridge
When a patient has one to three consecutive missing teeth, the bridge itself is supported by dental crowns placed on the remaining teeth on either side of the gap. These will be attached to prosthetic teeth, or pontics, that literally bridge the space.
Instead of the new teeth relying on natural teeth and crowns to remain in place, implant bridges work by placing one or two dental implants on either side of the gap and then topping them with crowns. These are then bonded to the prosthetic teeth. Implant bridges tend to be more stable than traditional ones and also allow Dr. Mohr to preserve more of a patient’s enamel during placement.
The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge
Dental bridges offer several benefits, including improving speech, chewing, as well as a patient’s confidence in their appearance. They help maintain the shape and structure of the face, as missing teeth can cause the skin to wrinkle and appear sunken in. They can also prevent further dental problems that can arise from missing teeth, such as gum disease and tooth decay. Additionally, our dental bridges are made to match the color and shape of the surrounding teeth, resulting in a natural-looking smile.
