What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is one or two artificial teeth cemented between dental crowns. The restoration teeth fill the space where teeth are missing, and the crowns anchor these restorations to healthy neighboring teeth. A dental bridge can also be secured with dental implants.

Dental Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth

A dental bridge and its supporting crowns are fixed prosthetics, meaning you’ll not have to apply sticky adhesives to prevent shifting. It is also customized to match your teeth in color. And the tooth shape will be like your natural teeth.

However, it is essential to keep the bridge clean. For this, we recommend a floss threader and a special cleaning brush to clear debris from the prosthetic and the area near the gumline. You might also consider a water pick to flush the area beneath the dental bridge.

The first step is determining your candidacy for this tooth replacement option. To do this, we have you come in for a chat and exam with your Mt. Pleasant prosthodontist. We can talk about the dental bridge at this visit and other potential options to restore your smile.
