Let's Talk About Bridges

Missing teeth can hinder your social life, self-esteem, and oral health. Fortunately, dental bridges provide an excellent solution to combat this. In a nutshell, dental bridges are prosthetic devices that help replace missing teeth.

Simply Crowns dentists Dr. Poest, Dr. Bhakta, and Dr. Talebloo are devoted to providing the best dental care possible, and we conveniently have four locations to do just that! 

What are Dental Bridges

A traditional bridge, the most common of dental bridges, is constructed by making crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and inserting a replacement tooth or teeth between the crowns. To further help improve your smile, we can also change the coloring of your bridge so it matches your natural teeth. 

Dental bridges get the name due to the way the appliance will bridge the gap between your teeth. Dental bridges are made out of two parts.

  • Abutments: Like an actual bridge you may cross while driving or even walking, dental bridges also have supports. These supports are called abutments. Abutments can typically also mean natural teeth, but we use a term to refer to small connectors used when doing dental implant-type bridges. 
  • Pontics: Pontics are simply the term used for the false teeth that fill the gap where you may be missing teeth when putting your dental bridge in.

What to Expect During the Process

Getting a dental bridge is a multi-step process that might take several weeks. 

Consultation

Not everyone will be able to get dental bridges, so this is why, before we go forward with anything, we always recommend you start with a consultation visit. In your initial consultation with Dr. Poest, Dr. Bhakta, or Dr. Talebloo, we will evaluate if dental bridges are the right choice for you. 

Getting Dental Bridges

Once we have decided dental bridges are right for you, we will schedule an appointment to do the procedure. At the visit, we will give you the appropriate amount of anesthesia to keep you comfortable and pain-free during your dental bridge placement. We will reshape your natural abutment teeth to help support your dental bridge. Once we finish this process, we will take dental impressions that will be sent to a lab to make your new dental bridges specific to you and your needs. This last step tends to take a few weeks, so after getting dental impressions of your teeth, we will place a temporary bridge while you wait for your new dental bridge. 

Your New Dental Bridges

Once your new dental bridges return to our office, we will have you come in so we can remove your temporary dental bridge. We will make sure your new and final bridge fits. Once we confirm that it does, we will bond your new dental bridge in place. Your smile is now complete once again! 

Aftercare

After getting your dental bridge, it is essential to maintain oral hygiene practices and regularly see your dentist. This practice helps keep your dental bridge and surrounding teeth healthy. Cleaning is necessary, and flossing is crucial to remove food debris between the specific areas around the bridge. It’sIt’s also essential to avoid sticky, hard, or chewy food that might dislodge the bridge. Be sure to follow all your dentist’s recommendations on aftercare to help your bridge last for years to come.
