Dental Bridges at Avenue Dental Surgery, Torquay
There are various types of dental bridges, when one of our clinicians are advising this option they are looking at where in the mouth the bridge will be located and also how many teeth it will be replacing. This will then determine on what type of bridge to use.
There are 4 types of bridges
– Traditional Bridge
– Cantilever Bridge
– Maryland Bridge
– Implant supported Bridge
Having dental bridges is just one of many procedures that can help you fill in missing teeth, but there are a couple of advantages that bridges offer over other methods:
- Great for filling in a few missing teeth
- They’ll quickly restore your smile
- Give you the ability to chew your food properly again
- A cost-effective option
- Prevents other teeth from moving and drifting
Who Are Dental Bridges For?
Dental bridges are suitable for almost anyone. If you have one or two teeth missing and don’t want to rely on dentures to fill them in, then a bridge can be created by preparing the adjacent teeth (abutment) and attaching a false tooth (pontic) between them. This is how a Traditional Dental bridge works and it’s very similar to a crown.
There are a couple of material choices, such as having a bridge made completely from ceramic, porcelain, metal or even fusing porcelain to metal. There are a wide variety of options available and they all come with different looks to help you achieve a natural-looking tooth.
When you book a consultation with us, your dentist will assess your oral health and determine if a bridge is suitable.
