What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges place porcelain crowns on your remaining teeth with an attached crown or crowns in between, forming a bridge that covers the gap where you are missing teeth. Dental bridges are ideal in situations where not many teeth are missing in a row. For patients who need a larger number of their teeth replaced, dental implants or dentures may be a better option.
Advantages and Disadvantages of a Dental Bridge
Dental bridges are a great solution to tooth replacement for many of our patients. While dental bridges are the right solution for some, they are not the best option for everyone. To determine if a dental bridge is the best tooth-replacement solution for you, read below for a list of advantages and disadvantages.
- Dental bridges are a cost-effective way to bring life back to your smile.
- A bridge, while not permanent, is a long-term solution to tooth replacement.
- Replacing teeth with a bridge can restore your ability to speak with others with unafflicted pronunciation.
- You will be able to chew with the affected part of your mouth again once you have a bridge.
- A dental bridge can stop other teeth from moving out of place.
- More permanent options are available, although these procedures are generally more expensive to perform.
- Dental bridges use crowns that anchor over your natural teeth. Because of this, the bridge can cause stress on those teeth.
- Dental bridges are not a fix for more serious underlying problems. Tooth decay and bone resorption can still occur beneath a dental bridge.
If you are unsure if a dental bridge is right for you, speak with your dentist. A consultation is an easy way to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge. If your dentist decides that a dental bridge is not for you, we will talk with you about other tooth-replacement options like dental implants or dentures.
