What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are an effective means of replacing missing teeth. This dental prosthetic device consists of two or more crowns (false teeth) cemented on adjacent teeth on either side of a gap between your natural teeth.
There are different types of dental bridges and our experienced dentists can determine which may be best option for your specific needs after evaluating your oral health and medical history during your examination appointment:
Traditional Dental Bridges
Traditional dental bridges consist of an artificial tooth or teeth which are supported by crowns on either side. Your McGregor dentist, Dr. Shultz or Dr. Raimondo, will attach the crowns to the natural teeth or dental implants on both sides of the missing tooth area to secure the bridge in place. Commonly, these are made of natural-looking porcelain or ceramic and often for replacing back teeth for patients with a heavy bite.
Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges except that they are supported by only one natural tooth or dental implant on one side of the missing teeth. For patients missing a tooth in the front, our dentists may recommend this type of bridge.
Maryland bridges are a type of traditional bridge supported by a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the back of the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The artificial tooth is attached in the middle of the framework and the whole dental bridge is supported in place by the natural teeth. Your exam and consultation with one of our dentists can determine if this is the right choice of bridge for you.
Implant-supported bridges are supported by dental implants rather than natural teeth and offer the most stability and support. Dr. Shultz or Dr. Raimondo may recommend this tooth replacement solution for our patients missing several teeth in a row.
