The Benefits of Dental bridges

Not sure why you should choose dental bridges over an alternative restorative dentistry treatment, such as a denture or a dental implant? Let’s take a look at a few advantages of this method of smile restoration.

Bridges Don't Shift Or Move

Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently cemented to your natural healthy teeth. This means that your restoration will never move or shift. It will look and feel more natural, ensuring you feel confident about your ability to smile, laugh, chew, and speak.

non-surgical treatment

Dental implants require invasive surgery to open up your gums and jaw bone, which some patients may not be comfortable with. Dental bridges only involve the removal of some surface enamel from your teeth, so they are much less invasive. The process is comparable to having a standard filling or dental crown placed on your tooth.

 Depending on your case, it may be possible to prepare your mouth, fit, and create a dental bridge within just 2-3 weeks. This is about the same time it takes to build a partial denture, and is much faster than a dental implant, which may take up to 3-6 months to restore your smile.

The basics of dental bridges

Dental bridges are an alternative to dental implants and dentures. Bridges attach permanently to two of your healthy teeth using dental crowns. One or more false teeth (pontics) are attached to these “abutment crowns,” and they fill up the gap in your smile where your missing tooth used to be.

Depending on your case, a bridge may be used to restore one missing tooth, but bridges can also be used to restore a row of 2, 3, or more missing teeth. This makes them an appealing option if you’ve lost multiple teeth in the same area of your mouth due to decay or an oral injury.

When it comes to overall longevity, lifespan, and effectiveness, bridges are between dentures and dental implants. They last up to 10 years or longer, which is longer than a typical partial denture, but is not as long as the 30+ years lifespan of an implant. 

They are also stronger and more durable than dentures, since they are permanently attached to your teeth, but they are not quite as strong as dental implants, which are implanted directly into your gum and jaw tissue.

Good Candidates for dental bridges

If you have a relatively healthy mouth that’s free of gum disease and extensive decay, but you have lost one or more teeth, particularly teeth that are next to each other, dental bridges may be a good way to restore your smile.
