Bridges

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

A bridge can be used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. Without one, your teeth could shift around in the space, lead to biting and jaw problems, and possibly periodontal disease. A typical bridge consists of a filler tooth attached to two surrounding crowns and this structure is bonded into the mouth. Due to the trimming/filing of the healthy teeth Bridges are becoming less popular.

During your initial visit, the surrounding teeth are cleaned to remove plaque or decay and lightly shaped so that the bridge will fit easily. A mold of the teeth is taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where a customised bridge will be prepared, and you’ll be fitted with a temporary bridge made of acrylic resin. When your bridge has been made, the temporary bridge can be removed and the permanent one fitted and adjusted to produce the proper bite and fit. It is then bonded into the mouth. It is important that the gumline and area surrounding the new structure is kept clean and special floss is often necessary to clean underneath the teeth and maintain strong, healthy gums. With proper dental care, bridges can last up to 10 years.
