Understanding Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices anchored onto existing teeth or implants to replace one or more missing teeth. They help restore the functionality of your teeth and prevent the shifting of remaining teeth into empty spaces, which could lead to bite problems.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

Opting for dental bridges comes with numerous benefits:

  • Restored Smile: Bridges fill the gaps in your smile, enhancing your appearance and confidence.
  • Improved Chewing and Speaking: Replacing missing teeth helps in regaining proper chewing and speaking abilities.
  • Maintain Facial Structure: Bridges prevent facial sagging caused by missing teeth, preserving your face’s natural shape.
  • Distribute Bite Force: Bridges help in evenly distributing the forces in your bite, maintaining the structural integrity of your dental arch.

Our Dental Bridge Options

San Diego Denture & Implant Specialists offers several types of dental bridges, tailored to meet diverse needs and preferences:

  • Traditional Bridges: Porcelain fused to metal or ceramics, these are most commonly used.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: Made of porcelain, these are supported by a metal framework.

The Process of Getting Dental Bridges

Receiving a dental bridge typically involves the following steps:

  1. Preparation: Adjacent teeth are prepared by recontouring these teeth and taking impressions.
  2. Temporary Bridge: A temporary bridge is placed while your custom bridge is being crafted.
  3. Permanent Bridge Fitting: Your final bridge is checked for fit and comfort before being cemented into place.
