What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a dental restoration that can replace one or more missing teeth. They are custom-made appliances that bridge the gap between two natural teeth or dental implants.

Dental bridges may be advantageous for people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile but can also lead to problems with biting, chewing, and speaking. Dental bridges can restore your smile and improve your eating and speaking ability.


How to prepare for dental bridges?

Preparing for dental bridge treatment involves several steps to ensure the process goes smoothly and you achieve the best possible results. 

  1. Before undergoing any dental treatment, it is important to consult with your dentist to discuss your options and any concerns you may have. During the consultation, your dentist will check your teeth gums, take x-rays if necessary, and recommend the best treatment plan.
  3. It is important to clearly understand the dental bridge procedure, including the preparation, the number of appointments required, and the aftercare instructions. Your dentist will explain the process, including potential risks and complications.
  5. Depending on the complexity of the dental bridge treatment, your dentist may recommend local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. Discuss your options and any concerns you may have with your dentist.
  7. Good oral hygiene is important for the success of dental bridge treatment. Ensure to brush and floss regularly, and schedule a dental cleaning before the procedure to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy.
  9. Your dentist may provide specific instructions to follow before the dental bridge treatment, such as avoiding food and drink for a certain time before the procedure.


By following these steps and working closely with your dentist, you can help ensure that your dental bridge treatment is successful and that you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

How does it work?

The procedure for getting a dental bridge typically involves several steps. First, your dentist will prepare the adjacent teeth by removing a portion of the enamel to make room for the bridge. Then, impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent to a specialized dental laboratory, where the bridge will be custom-made to fit your mouth. In the meantime, a temporary bridge may be placed to protect your teeth and gums.

Once the custom-made bridge is ready, your dentist will remove the temporary bridge and replace it with the permanent one. The bridge is held in place by either dental crowns cemented onto the adjacent teeth or dental implants surgically placed into the jawbone.
