Dental Bridges 101
Dental bridges consist of two or more dental crowns with false teeth placed in between. The dental crowns will be permanently attached to the teeth surrounding the gap and the false teeth will fill in the empty space. This type of restoration is non-removable so you don’t have to worry about taking it out to eat, sleep, or clean it. Simply brush and floss as you would your natural teeth.
Bridges vs. Other Restorative Options
One of the main advantages of dental bridges is that they are fixed in place. Partial dentures function similarly to a dental bridge but must be removed for proper cleaning. Oftentimes, patients prefer a restoration that doesn’t require removal. Another advantage of dental bridges is that they can typically treat a wider range of cases. For example, dental implants are becoming a popular method for tooth replacement. However, not everyone has the jawbone density to support dental implants. In this case, a dental bridge would be a better restorative option.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are dental bridges better than dental implants?
Each case is unique and the best restorative option for your smile is determined on a case-by-case basis. During your initial consultation, we’ll go over your current state of oral health, chief smile concerns, and budget. After a careful examination, we can determine the best form of treatment for you.
How long do dental bridges last?
With proper care, a dental bridge can last up to ten years or longer. Ensure you’re brushing at least twice daily, flossing once per day, and rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash. Additionally, you should be visiting our office every six months to allow our team to accurately monitor your oral health and any changes in your dental bridge.
How much does a dental bridge cost?
No treatment plan is the same and the cost of dental bridges varies. During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with an accurate cost breakdown and go over all of your payment options with you. We’re insurance friendly and offer our Summit Savings Plan to uninsured patients. Rest assured, our goal is to provide you with affordable restorative dentistry!
