Quick Guide to Dental Bridges

 

What are dental bridges? They're a form a dental appliance which is used to replace a series of missing teeth. They are custom made and fitted to match the structure of your jaw and teeth, and therefore provide an aesthetically-pleasing and natural solution, which will also be comfortable and long-lasting.

Here are several important distinctions about different types of dental bridges which may be available:

  • Fixed dental bridges cannot be removed. They're permanently installed and different varieties include conventional bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges.
  • Implant bridges are attached below the gum tissue or bone, supported by the implant structure as opposed to the surrounding teeth.
  • Other bridges may be removable, allowing you to clean them or remove them in certain circumstances. Some removable bridges though may only be removed by a dentist.
  • Dental bridges may be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold alloys, and other combinations of materials.
