What is a Dental Bridge?

Model of dental bridge

Dental bridges are restorations used to close the gap left behind by a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A bridge permanently anchors the artificial teeth, called pontics, to the adjacent, existing teeth on either side of the gap. In some cases, dental implants may also be used to secure bridges.

Bridges look natural, feel comfortable, and restore oral functionality – this is thanks to the detailed impressions and careful considerations taken by Dr. Lloyd and his team. You can rest assured that after you’ve received yours, you’ll hardly notice or feel a difference between it and your natural teeth!

Types of Dental Bridges

The only way to determine which type of bridge is suitable for your needs is to come to visit Dr. Lloyd for a consultation; he’ll be able to quickly examine your situation, review your medical history, and determine if a bridge can be used to restore your grin. We’re proud to offer two different types of bridges here in our Daytona Beach office – here’s a closer look at each of them:

Traditional Dental Bridges

This is often the go-to option for patients missing one, two, or more teeth in a row. First, we’ll place a crown on either side of the gap and then we can “bridge” the space with pontics. While this method does require a slight alteration of your existing adjacent teeth, in addition to them needing to be healthy, it ensures lasting success and a normal-looking appearance.

Implant Bridges

Implant bridges are different than their traditional counterparts; rather than relying on crowns placed on healthy adjacent teeth for support, they rely on dental implants placed directly into the jawbone. Due to the impressive level of stability provided by the implant posts, your restoration will have a much longer lifespan, feel more natural, and return more of your biting power. It also doesn’t require your existing teeth to be altered. However, the process for receiving implants is lengthier, and patients must also meet specific dental health requirements.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

When you receive a dental bridge, you’re not just restoring the gap in your grin – you’re also gaining access to numerous life-changing benefits, including:

  • Bridges are fully customized for your smile, meaning they’ll look and feel completely natural.
  • Bridges can replace one, two, or more missing teeth in a row, making them quite versatile.
  • They allow you to speak clearly and bite and chew normally, meaning your day-to-day will become noticeably easier.
  • They actually help to prevent dental drift, which is the misalignment of remaining teeth following tooth loss.
  • They’re remarkably easy to care for and can last for 10+ years under ideal circumstances.
