Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are false teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. These dental bridges are usually anchored onto the neighboring teeth. It is also known as fixed partial denture. The false teeth, also known as pontic will be fused into two crowns. This will act as an anchor attached to the teeth on each side of the pontic, and bridge them together. These may be made of procelian, all-metal, or procelian bonded to precious metal.

Mainly, a dental bridge has two parts. One is the pontic or false tooth. Other one is the two crowns. Pontic is used to replace the missing tooth. It may be made by gold, alloys or procelain. The two crowns serve as an anchor, which supports the pontic to be in place.

When the appearance, smile, speech, shape of the face, rate of gum disease and tooth decay are affected by the teeth loose, dental bridging will be suggested by the dentist as a remedy. The missing teeth cause all these problems, and so, it has to be replaced.

Types of dental bridges:

There are mainly three types of dental bridges. They are:

  • Traditional fixed bridge
  • Resin-bonded bridges or Maryland-bonded bridges and
  • Cantilever bridges.

Traditional fixed bridges are most commonly used type of bridges. The pontic will be fused between two procelian crowns, anchored on the neighboring teeth or implants. The pontics are usually made of either ceramics or procelian, which is fused to metal.

Resin-bonded or Maryland-bonded bridges are chosen when it is to fill the gap in between the front teeth, or when the neighbor tooth are strong and healthy without larger fillings. The pontic will be made of plastic and fused to metal bands linking to the neighboring teeth using resin, which will not be seen. Cantilever bridges are used when the adjacent teeth are on only one side of the pontic.

The dental bridge can last for ten to fifteen years. It depends upon how you clean and maintain oral health. Like every other treatments, this also needs hygienic dental care. Daily brushing, flossing and good control over the diet are essentially needed care for maintaining the dental bridges.
