Secure your teeth and replace missing ones

Missing teeth can leave you with gaps in your smile that you want to fill. They can also be very costly to repair. With a dental bridge, we use your natural teeth to create a gap-filling bridge that looks and functions just like your natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy a smile that looks and feels great.

A dental bridge is a long-lasting alternative to a removable dental appliance, such as a partial denture or a removable denture. It consists of crowns and pontics placed on opposing teeth to cover the gap created by missing teeth.

Benefits

  • Easily removable for hygiene
  • Looks and feels just like natural teeth
  • Easier to clean and maintain
  • Restores function and appearance

Considerations

  • Costly treatment, but should be considered an investment in long-term oral health
  • Not all patients may be suitable
  • Surgical procedure is required

Bridges and Partial Dentures: A Comprehensive Guide

What are Bridges?

Bridges are dental prosthetics that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are typically made of porcelain or ceramic and are anchored in place using the teeth on either side of the gap.

Types of Bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a pontic (fake tooth) in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Cantilever bridges involve attaching a pontic to only one tooth instead of two.
  • Maryland Bridges: Maryland bridges involve attaching a pontic to the back of adjacent teeth using metal or porcelain wings.

Caring for Your Bridges

Proper bridge care is essential to maintain their longevity and optimal performance. It includes regular cleaning, avoiding hard or sticky foods, and scheduling regular check-ups with your dentist.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to fill gaps left by missing teeth. They are typically made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal and are attached to adjacent teeth using clasps.

Types of Partial Dentures

  • Acrylic Partial Dentures: Acrylic partial dentures are made entirely of acrylic and are typically used as temporary prosthetics.
  • Cast Metal Partial Dentures: Cast metal partial dentures are made of a metal framework with acrylic and/or porcelain teeth attached.
  • Flexible Partial Dentures: Flexible partial dentures are made from a flexible material that allows for a more comfortable fit without the need for clasps.

Caring for Your Partial Dentures

Proper partial denture care is essential to maintain their longevity and optimal performance. It includes regular cleaning, avoiding abrasive materials, and storing them properly when not in use.
