The most simplistic way of describing a Dental Bridge is that it is two crowns, with a false tooth suspended between them, that is cemented over your adjacent teeth.
Other missing tooth replacement solutions are full dentures and removable partial dentures.
Dental Bridges are a faster and more traditional treatment option for a single missing tooth.
At Hylan Dental Care, we offer three different kinds of dental bridges: a cantilever bridge, a traditional dental bridge, and a Maryland bonded bridge.
Take a look below to learn the differences between the three dental bridge types.
This kind of dental bridge is used when you have teeth only on one side of the missing tooth spot.
A traditional dental bridge is the most common type of dental bridge patients get. This type of dental bridge is either made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics; a traditional bridge is two or more dental crowns with a filler tooth (or teeth, depending on how many teeth gaps you need replaced). The filler tooth will be attached to the crowns, which will help anchor it down. A traditional dental bridge is the most common type of dental bridge that patients get, and it is either made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
A dental bridge can last up to 15 years, and could possibly last longer as long as you practice good oral hygiene habits!
So, what is a good oral hygiene routine?
Let's take a look below...
The proper aftercare for a dental bridge is straightforward- brush your teeth twice a day, floss once per day, and follow through on going to the bi-annual Routine Dental Cleanings at your dentist.
Attending dental cleanings and check-ups will allow your dentist to detect any oral issues early on and help you maintain great oral health.
All of our dentists, hygienists, and staff subscribe to a Gentle Approach.
What exactly does that mean? We are aware that many individuals have extreme anxiety, or even phobias when it comes to visiting the dentists. They imagine their appointment consisting of painful procedures and judgmental dentists. Hylan Dental Care wants to eliminate this fear. Our dentists are always thoughtful, kind, and put the patient's comfort first. Our ultimate goal as a dental clinic is to make sure our patients feel good about their smile, have healthy teeth, and always feel comfortable during treatments.
We feel we have met and surpassed this goal. One way we ensure this is by utilizing Sedation Dentistry. With sleep dentistry, our patients do not go "completely under" like with general anesthesia, they still control their breathing and reflexes. However, our patients are in a completely relaxed state of mind. In fact, many patients that utilize our sedation dentistry don't even have a recollection of their appointment when it is completed!
Talk about having peace of mind.
