What Is Dental Bridgework?

Dental bridges are replacement teeth that fill in the empty space left by missing teeth. Bridges have advanced significantly and now look like natural teeth. Dr. Eddie Kuo provide patients with bridges for a range of reasons, from gaps from teeth that never grew in to missing teeth from an injury or gum disease.

Bridges feature abutment teeth and pontics. The abutment teeth are the anchoring teeth, usually crowns, that sit on the edges of the gap. The pontics are the replacement teeth that connect with the crowns and fill in the rest of the gap.

There are four types of bridges, and our experts can install any of them for you:

Traditional Dental Bridge

Traditional

Traditional fixed bridges are the most common. These feature at least two crowns with replacement teeth. The crowns and teeth are connected, with the crowns securing the bridge. These are usually made from ceramic, metal, or porcelain and metal.
Maryland Bridge

Maryland

Maryland bridges are also called resin-bonded bridges. They are most common for front teeth. These bridges fuse porcelain with ceramic or metal teeth and have a framework for support. The bridge bonds with the adjoining teeth using wings.
Implant Supported Bridge

Implant-Supported

These bridges are almost identical to traditional bridges. The main difference is that implants hold the pontics in place instead of teeth.

Don’t Put up With Missing Teeth

If you put off having dental bridges put in, you will be left with gaps in your smile. From an aesthetic standpoint, this may reduce your confidence in your smile. Maybe you don’t want to smile in pictures or give people a friendly smile hello.

Missing teeth can also cause a host of oral problems. Your nearby teeth may shift into the empty space. The teeth on your opposite jaw may also do the same.

Additionally, your jawbone may weaken in the area you are missing a tooth. This jawbone weakness can lead to your face starting to droop in parts. It can also make you lose other teeth.

Without bridges, you may have issues chewing, limiting the foods you can enjoy. You may also notice pain in your teeth and jaw, thanks to the extra stress.

Bring Your Bite Back to Normal

After you have us place a bridge in your mouth, you will notice that you can once again enjoy the things you used to take for granted. If you had issues with pronunciation or enunciation due to missing teeth, you will be able to speak clearly.

If you had issues chewing certain foods, or pain from uneven biting, that will resolve itself. Most patients find it easier to eat after having a dental bridge installed.

With a bridge in place, you will no longer be self-conscious about your smile. You will find yourself smiling wide, with no one the wiser that you have a bridge in place. It will look just like your natural teeth. You will also retain the natural shape of your face.

You will also have peace of mind. You will know that there is no gap for other teeth to shift into. There is also no risk of your jaw weakening from the lack of teeth.
