Dental Bridges


“Dental bridges fill the gap created by missing teeth”

Dentistry Bridges replace missing teeth and offer support for the surrounding teeth to help retain the integrity of the jaw and face structure. A bridge allows the dentist to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. Basically, a false tooth is held in place by being attached to a tooth next door. The disadvantage is that the teeth next to the space have to be prepared in a similar way to a crown in order to accept the bridge A bridge stabilizes the bite of a patient who is missing one or more teeth. Bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from moving or shifting in the mouth. A missing tooth that is not replaced may cause surrounding teeth to become unstable and require removal, or make the teeth harder to clean, compromising oral health. Missing teeth also change the shape of a face and diminish the beauty of a smile.

What will dental Bridges achive for me?

  • Fix your smile visually

  • Restore normal eating ability

  • Fix the contours of your face where the missing teeth were.

  • Restore the bite force to be more even
  • Control missing teeth from shifting positions in your mouth


 Unlike partial dentures, bridges are permanent; patients cannot remove them. There are three main kinds of bridges. In a traditional bridge, the pontic (“false tooth”) is fused between the two crowns of the abutment teeth on either side. In a Maryland bridge, a metal band (hidden from view) binds the pontic to the abutment teeth. A cantilever bridge is necessary when there is an abutment tooth on only one side of the pontic. Maryland dental bridges work best when the teeth are front teeth adjoining healthy teeth that do not have large fillings.
