What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth by spanning the gap between adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Consisting of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, dental bridges are anchored in place by abutment teeth on either side. These abutment teeth can be natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges restore the functionality of the bite, improve speech, and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. Crafted from materials like porcelain, they are custom-made to match the colour, shape, and size of natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing solution for individuals with missing teeth.

The advantages of Dental Bridges

Restored Functionality

Bridges replace missing teeth, restoring the ability to bite, chew, and speak effectively.

Aesthetic Enhancement

Custom-made bridges blend seamlessly with natural teeth, enhancing the overall appearance of the smile.

Prevention of Tooth Shifting

By filling the gap left by missing teeth, bridges prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment.

Improved Speech

Restoring proper dental alignment with bridges contributes to clearer and more articulate speech.

Preservation of Facial Structure

Missing teeth can lead to changes in facial structure over time. Bridges help maintain the natural contour of the face.

Comfort and Stability

Dental bridges are fixed in place, providing stability and comfort compared to removable dentures.

Efficient Chewing

Bridges restore the ability to chew food efficiently, ensuring proper digestion and nutrition.

Durable and Long-lasting

Crafted from durable materials, bridges offer a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth.

Conservative Tooth Preparation

In many cases, adjacent teeth act as abutments for the bridge, requiring minimal alteration to their structure.

Enhanced Confidence

With the aesthetic and functional benefits of dental bridges, individuals experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem.
