What Is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are prosthetic accessories customized to fill the gap created due to one or more missing teeth. The absence of teeth can harm the remaining teeth and affect oral health. A dental bridge includes crowns for adjoining natural teeth and implants for missing teeth. The natural teeth act like abutments; through the crown, they help anchor the implant to span the gap created by the missing teeth. With dental bridges, it is possible to overcome issues associated with missing teeth and attain better dental and oral health. It also serves aesthetic considerations.

 

We can customize your dental bridges from a variety of materials. With our team of dentists, you can be sure about getting reliable dental bridges in NW Calgary. 

 

Types of Dental Bridges

Several dental bridges are available to solve dental issues caused by missing teeth. Our dentists will help you get tooth bridges that are most suitable for your dental conditions. There are different dental bridges, and our dentists can consult you on the most appropriate dental bridge based on your dental conditions.

  • Traditional dental bridges: They are used when natural teeth are on each side of the gap where you have a missing tooth (or teeth).

  • Implant-supported dental bridge: They are used when you don’t have healthy teeth or enough teeth to support the dental bridge. A custom-made bridge is also anchored to dental implants.

  • Resin-bonded dental bridges: They are also known as ‘Maryland’ bridges and are used when your front teeth are missing. Artificial teeth are fused with metal bands and cemented to the back of your natural teeth. Artificial teeth are fabricated with durable Zirconia material or full porcelain.

  • Cantilever dental bridges: They are used when you have healthy teeth on only one side of your missing tooth or teeth. This involves anchoring your artificial tooth over one or more natural adjacent teeth.

 

Our team offers customized dental bridges which meet your needs. Visit our clinic to discuss your issue with us. 

The procedure for getting your dental bridges is simple and easy. When you visit us for your dental bridges in NW Calgary, you can expect the following: 

​ 

  1. Your initial appointment involves a general dental assessment so our dentists can determine the best course of action for your dental condition. 

  2. If you are to get a dental bridge, the teeth on either side of a missing tooth are reduced in size to make space for the bridge to fit in properly. 

  3. We surgically place dental implants if you don't have healthy or enough teeth to support a bridge. A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal inserted into the jawbone to replace the natural tooth's root. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the bridge firmly.

  4. We then take an impression of your teeth to create a mouth mould. This mould is used to create a custom tooth bridge. We provide you with a temporary dental bridge while developing a permanent bridge for you. 

  5. The temporary bridge is removed at your next appointment and replaced with a new, permanent one. We also make any necessary final adjustments to ensure the dental bridge fits.

The Procedure for Getting Dental Bridges 

How Does Dental Bridge Help Your Dental Condition?

You can expect the following benefits.

 

  • Protection or restoration: Dental bridges protect against potential oral health hazards while restoring your teeth' functionality. Whether you've lost a tooth due to decay, injury, or extraction, a dental bridge seamlessly fills the gap.

 

  • Aesthetics: A radiant smile is not just a cosmetic asset but a reflection of oral health. Our dentists ensure that your dental bridge functions flawlessly and looks aesthetically pleasing, boosting your confidence and leaving a lasting impression.

 

  • Improved chewing: Loose or shifting teeth can interfere with chewing, making it hard to eat. Dental bridges restore healthy chewing function, ensuring you can enjoy meals comfortably.

 

  • Improved facial shape: Your jawbone can begin deteriorating when you lose your teeth, changing your facial shape. Dental bridges can help halt this process, preserving facial structure.

 

  • Preventing teeth from shifting: Missing teeth or gaps between your teeth cause your remaining teeth to shift. Dental bridges can help fill that space and prevent teeth from shifting.

 

  • Durability: When it comes to dental restorations, longevity is essential. Dental bridges last long, offering enduring functionality and peace of mind.

Ideal Candidate for Dental Bridges

It is important to have good dental health to have dental bridges. Ideal candidates generally have missing adjacent teeth and sufficient healthy jawbones. If you're suffering from gum disease or tooth decay, we recommend addressing it before proceeding with the procedure. We advise patients to adopt healthy dental hygiene habits and a balanced diet.

 

 

How to Take Care of  Your Dental Bridges

The effectiveness of dental bridges depends on the health of the existing teeth. For this reason, those with dental bridges must take care of both their dental bridges and natural teeth. To  prevent gum disease and other dental issues, it is recommended that you:

  • Brush and floss regularly
  • Schedule routine professional dental cleanings
  • Eat a balanced diet with a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables
  • Quit or limit smoking and other habits that deter your dental health

What Determines the Cost of a Dental Bridge?

The costs of dental bridges vary depending on the following factors:

  • The type of dental bridge you select
  • The material of the bridge
  • The number of gaps that are to be filled
  • The complexity of bridge placement and supporting treatments

 

How Long Will Dental Bridges Last?

Dental bridges are fairly durable and can last up to 10 years or more with appropriate care. Since dental bridges allow normal oral hygiene steps like brushing and flossing, they are easy to maintain. Besides, our dentists will also brief you about the proper cleaning process for you, depending on your dental bridge type. Professional dental cleaning from time to time can also elongate the life of dental bridges and crowns.

How Do I Look After Getting My Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges help you get rid of the discomfort of missing teeth. You may, however, feel slight tenderness, and it will take some time to adjust to the new feeling of having teeth in the place of gaps. 

Do Dental Bridges Require Special Aftercare? 

One added benefit of dental bridges is that they do not require special care. You can continue your regular brushing and flossing routine to maintain dental bridges..
