What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are prosthetics created to replace one or several missing teeth. They contain the designated number of pontics (false teeth) required to refill your smile and are anchored into your mouth at both ends by dental crowns or dental implants. They’re customized to match your natural pearly whites for a perfectly seamless smile that allows you to eat, speak, and laugh with ease.

Types of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges typically are attached to your natural teeth via dental crowns, but if they’re too damaged or are too far apart, you might instead need dental implants for the abutments (support). During your consultation with your dedicated dentists at Springhetti Dentistry, our team will examine your smile and discuss your smile goals with you, and after reviewing all of the finer details, we’ll be able to recommend the best treatment for your grin.

Traditional Dental Bridge

This method can replace one or more missing consecutive missing teeth. Your natural teeth at either side of the bridge will be outfitted with dental crowns in order to secure the rest of the bridge in place. If they’re too weak or damaged to support a dental bridge, you will require dental implants in their place.

Implant Bridge

This technique is often used to replace three or more teeth in a row, or when your pearly whites are too frail to bear the weight of the restoration. Instead of attaching to natural teeth, your dentist will surgically implant posts (usually titanium) into your jawbone and then attach the bridge once you have healed.
