Bridge

A dental bridge is a connection of a crown and a fake tooth. A fake tooth will be created to replace a missing tooth by putting it between two healthy teeth while the two healthy neighboring teeth will be covered or capped with high quality porcelain crowns. A fake tooth and those porcelain crowns will be connected to each other.

The bridge will help to prevent the shifting of the teeth, and also the gum disease may be decreased at the same time. Moreover, it will retain good bite and natural speech.

There are 2 main types of dental bridge

Fixed bridge, the most popular containing a filler tooth attached to two crowns fit over the remaining teeth.
The cantilever bridge which is usually used when there are teeth only on one side of the span of the space.

Bridge is a unit of several crowns that are combined together to cover the gap between teeth. The gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain on the teeth at either side. A gap can also mean that the ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

How are missing teeth replaced?

This depends on the number of teeth missing and on where they are in the mouth. The condition of the other teeth also affects the decision. There are three main ways to replace the missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth or teeth – a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge. A bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.And the third one is dental implants .

What are bridges made of?

Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base. If the bridge will show, porcelain is then bonded to the base. .

How to look after bridge?

The bridge should be cleand every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. The patient also have to clean under the false tooth every day.
