Dental Bridges

Bridges and Implant Retained Bridges

Single Implants, Implant Dentures and Implant Bridges

Dental bridges have provided replacement teeth for many decades. In fact, they are the gold standard for replacing a single tooth, or a few teeth in a row. Today, patients can choose from a traditional bridge, attached to dental crowns, or an implant-retained bridge, secured to one or more implant posts anchored in the jawbone.

Who Needs a Dental Bridge?

Anyone who is missing one permanent tooth or a few permanent teeth in a row will benefit from a dental bridge. A complete examination is necessary so that the dentist can determine whether your mouth is healthy enough for a bridge. In some cases, periodontal therapy may be necessary to create a healthy foundation for restorations. For patients missing many teeth, the dentist may suggest a full or partial denture, instead of a bridge.

Benefits of a Dental Bridge

A dental bridge has many health benefits, but also delivers a positive emotional impact.

  • Contributes to a natural, young, and healthy-looking smile, as well as improved self-image
  • Improves the ability to bite, chew, and eat foods
  • May improve enunciation of words and overall speech quality
  • Reduces the likelihood for losing more teeth in coming years

The Traditional Bridge

A conventional bridge is made of a crown, one or more replacement teeth, and a second crown. The crowns attach to healthy, natural teeth and hold the replacement teeth in place, over the site of the missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are permanent, non-removable appliances. With proper care, they can last up to 10 years or longer.

Implant-Retained Bridge

Instead of attaching to crowns on natural teeth, a bridge can be secured to one or more dental implants, placed into the jawbone during a brief surgery. Implant-retained bridges do not require support by healthy teeth, and implant posts stimulate the jaw to reduce the potential for future bone deterioration. With good oral health, implants can last a lifetime.
