What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge involves placing two dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.

The teeth are prepared for crowns, an impression is taken, a temporary bridge or temporary crowns are placed over the prepared teeth.

The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge is made to precisely fit your teeth and your bite.

In a follow-up appointment to your dentist, the dental bridge is adjusted and fitted and then permanently cemented in place.

Another affordable missing tooth replacement would be our partial dentures.

What types of dental bridges are available at Hylan Dental Care?

There are three types of dental bridges available at Hylan Dental Care: a traditional dental bridge, a cantilever bridge, and a Maryland bonded bridge.

Let's take a look below at what the differences between the three dental bridge types are.

1. Traditional dental bridge

A traditional dental bridge consists of two or more dental crowns and a filler tooth (or teeth, depending on how many missing teeth you need replaced). The filler tooth will be attached to one (or more) of the crowns, again, depending on how many missing teeth you are replacing. 

The dental crowns help keep the bridge in place.

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.

2. Cantilever dental bridge

A cantilever dental bridge is used when there are teeth only on one side of the missing tooth spot (which means there are no teeth across the other side of the gap).

3. Maryland bonded dental bridge

A Maryland bonded dental bridge is made of plastic teeth and gums and supported by a metal framework; there are metal wings on each side of the bridge that are bonded to your existing natural teeth.

This is the kind of bridge commonly used to fill in missing front teeth.

Maryland bonded bridges are also called resin-bonded bridges.

How long do dental bridges last?

A dental bridge can last from five years to 15 years, and maybe even longer. 

To maintain the integrity of your dental bridge, it is vital to practice good oral hygiene habits every day.

Which brings us to the question below...

What is proper aftercare for a bridge?

The proper aftercare for a dental bridge is pretty simple- practicing good oral hygiene routine, which includes brushing teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and going to routine cleanings at your dentist.

Keeping a regular dental cleaning appointment (at least twice a year!) will help your dentist to assist you in maintaining great oral health and catch any oral health issues early on.
