Transform Your Smile With Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. When a person loses a tooth, whether due to decay, injury, or other reasons, a gap is created in the mouth. This gap can affect the person’s ability to chew, speak clearly, and may even impact the appearance of their smile. Dental bridges offer a solution to these issues by “bridging” the gap between the remaining natural teeth.

What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, which are anchored in place by dental crowns on the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The pontics fill the gap left by the missing teeth, restoring the appearance, function, and alignment of the patient’s smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental bridges a suitable option for replacing missing teeth?

Dental bridges are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are suitable for many individuals, but the best treatment option for you will depend on various factors, including your oral health, the location of the missing teeth, and your personal preferences. Consult with our dentists to determine if dental bridges are the right choice for you.

How long do dental bridges last?

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental bridges can last for many years, typically ranging from 5 to 15 years or more. The lifespan of a bridge depends on various factors, including oral hygiene practices, the quality of materials used, and the individual’s oral habits. Here at Lakefront Dental, we can provide guidance on how to maximize the longevity of your dental bridge.

Will getting a dental bridge be painful?

The process of getting a dental bridge is usually not painful. Local anesthesia is used during the tooth preparation stage to ensure your comfort. Some patients may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort after the procedure, but it is generally manageable and temporary. We will provide appropriate pain management instructions if needed.

How should I care for my dental bridge?

Proper care and maintenance are essential to prolong the lifespan of your dental bridge. This includes practicing good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using antibacterial mouthwash. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are also important. Avoid biting on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to the bridge.
