What is a Dental Bridge?
Each tooth is important for your dental health. Losing even one can increase your risk of additional oral health issues, like tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Your quality of life can also decline because it can be difficult to eat certain foods or speak clearly. If you are embarrassed by your incomplete smile, we have the solution for you.
A dental bridge has been used for generations to treat consecutive tooth loss. All-ceramic material recreates the portions of your lost teeth above the gum line. They are crafted to match the color, size, and shape of your real teeth to blend in with your smile.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are multiple types of bridges, depending on your needs. After examining your mouth, your dentist in Columbus will explain all your options, including:
Traditional Dental Bridge
A traditional fixed bridge can treat up to 4 missing teeth in a row, but it is most often recommended for 1-2. The bridge is held in place by bonding dental crowns to the adjacent teeth. As a result, they must be reshaped to allow the restorations to fit over them. A bridge and crowns are an effective method to replicate the surfaces of your teeth, which can last for 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
As an alternative to a traditional bridge, dental implants can be used instead of crowns. 1-2 dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to mimic roots. This replaces the entire tooth structure, not just the crown. With the support of your jawbone, you can treat up to 4 teeth without risking instability. An implant bridge can last for decades with the right maintenance, like brushing and flossing.
We know it's a big decision, but you don't have to make it alone. Your dentist will create the personalized plan you need to rehabilitate your smile.
