What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a restorative solution that is designed to eliminate gaps caused by tooth loss. When one or more teeth are missing along the top or bottom row of your smile, this unique solution fuses multiple dental crowns to create what appears to be a “bridge.” Using your healthy adjacent teeth as anchors, they are filed down in preparation for the bridge prosthetic. Our team will bond it into place when ready, allowing the exterior crowns to be secured to your healthy teeth while the interiors crowns sit on top of your gums to create a beautifully blended smile that can last many years with proper care.

Types of Dental Bridges

Depending on your preferences and the status of your oral and overall health, you will be eligible to receive one of two types of dental bridges: a traditional or an implant bridge. Your dentist in Bergenfield will first perform a thorough examination to determine which option is right for what you need.

Traditional Dental Bridge

This type of prosthetic uses natural teeth to connect to and is much less invasive and costly than an implant bridge. However, you must have strong and healthy tooth structures that can serve as anchors, as your traditional fixed bridge will need to have something durable to attach to once it is ready for placement.

Implant Bridge

If you prefer a more stable and permanent option, an implant bridge is a great way to achieve this goal. Instead of altering your natural teeth, an implant bridge only treats the vacated socket(s). Using titanium implant posts and metal abutments, your dentist in Bergenfield can easily place each implant into the appropriate areas before applying the metal abutments and customized dental bridge on top. This will provide greater bite force and chewing power as well as improved oral health because of your implants and their ability to provide continuous stimulation to the jawbone.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge?
