What is dental bridge
Dr Ariadni Charalambous

Dental bridges are used to hold your teeth in place and prevent your other teeth from shifting and becoming loose after the loss of a tooth.

A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns and is attached to the teeth on either side of the gap.

If you have a missing tooth or teeth and healthy teeth on either side of the gap caused by the missing teeth, you may need a dental bridge.

We will first examine your mouth and treat any tooth decay or gum disease. Then we may need to take an x-ray and measurements of the teeth and mouth.

Following we will normally file down the two good teeth on either side of the gap to prepare the space for a dental bridge and take a mold of the teeth gap. This mold will be used by dental technicians in the lab to make you a permanent bridge. While you wait for your permanent bridge to be built, you may be given a temporary bridge. If that’s the case, it’ll be removed once your permanent bridge is ready.

When the permanent bridge is ready, it is cemented into place over the healthy teeth in the surrounding area. In case you have several missing teeth then we may also use a dental implant, which is surgically implanted in the jaw, to secure the bridge. We will determine whether dental implants are needed in your case.
