What is a dental bridge?
- A dental bridge is an alternative to dental implants when replacing a missing tooth.
- It connects the teeth on either side of a missing tooth (known as “abutments”) with a “pontic” tooth that ends up replacing the missing tooth.
What are the benefits of bridges?
- Restores tooth function.
- Restores and enhances tooth appearance.
- Under local anesthesia, the teeth on both sides of the space left by a missing tooth are prepared for a bridge.
- An impression of the prepared tooth is taken and sent to our dental laboratory for a fixed bridge. In the meantime, will have a temporary bridge for 1 week.
- Once the bridge is fabricated, it will be inserted in place of the temporary bridge at your next visit (one week later).
