What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a replacement for one or more missing teeth. Typically, one or more of the adjacent teeth are crowned and used as “anchor” teeth to support the new crown. Dr. Avi Israeli at Sage Dental in Wall Township, New Jersey is a general dentist who can help you with your missing teeth.
Benefits of A Tooth Bridge
When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, dental bridges are one solution to getting the proper care you need for your mouth. Here are some reasons why you should consider getting a teeth bridge
- When you replace a missing tooth (or teeth) with either a bridge, a partial denture, or an implant, you prevent the adjacent and opposing teeth from shifting into that position.
- Replacing a tooth (or teeth) will help preserve the chewing function of the teeth in that area as well as the aesthetics.
- Replacing a missing tooth (or teeth) will help with speech and prevent jaw changes from occurring, such as collapsing of the arch.
- Getting the proper treatment can preserve facial shape and stop areas of the face from sinking in where the missing teeth are located
Our Bridge Procedure
We make sure that the tooth replacement fits your mouth shape, color, and size so it matches the adjacent and opposing teeth. This is done by taking impressions on your teeth.
By taking all these steps beforehand, you will get a well-fitted bridge that should give you many years of use. We encourage regular check-ups to help maintain underneath the bridge area to prevent food trapping and potentially causing decay.
how long does a dental bridge take
The bridge process usually takes two visits. During the first visit, our dentist will look at your teeth and get an impression that will be sent to a laboratory. On your second visit, our dentist will put the bridge on your mouth. These two visits will be around an hour to an hour and a half.
TYPE OF DENTAL BRIDGES
There are several types of bridges that our dentistry does for our patients. We can do a conservative bridge in the front that looks like porcelain veneers on the two adjacent teeth. This is referred to as a Maryland bridge (also known as resin-bonded bridges).
A traditional bridge will be replacing one or more teeth with the adjacent teeth acting as support teeth. Recently, with the success of implants, many offices are doing fewer bridges and more dental implants, since you don’t need to reduce the adjacent teeth. On the other hand, if there is an old crown on either side of the space, then a new bridge connecting the two adjacent teeth is a viable option.
