Bridges Filling the gap for Missing teeth

Bridges can also be constructed from the same materials. There are two types of bridge. A conventional bridge is where the teeth are trimmed down similar to crowns and cemented onto the teeth.

A resin bonded bridge is where minimal tooth is removed and relies on adhesive to hold the bridge in place. Careful planning is required with models and wax ups to make sure this is going to be successful. Bridges can be used to replace anterior and posterior teeth.

The Benefits of Bridges

Why would I need a bridge?

Usually because you have a tooth extracted or knocked out in an accident, leaving you with a gap in your teeth. Closing the space is important for cosmetic reasons, but your dentist has a good clinical reasons to fill in the space too, leaving the gap open can put extra strain on the teeth either side. It can also affect your ‘bite,’ the teeth on either side of the gap may lean together into the space and alter the way that the upper and lower jaw teeth meet, which can cause further problems.

How long does a bridge last?

A dental bridge should last for many years, if properly looked after.

How do I look after my bridge?

You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day.
