Make Your Smile Complete with Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can be embarrassing. It can also cause a lot of problems for your dental health. A dental bridge is an excellent way to fill in the space left by missing teeth, and it also helps keep your oral health in check.

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. This dental restoration utilises the adjacent teeth for retention and support. They are fixed to healthy teeth on either side of the gap, eliminating the need to manually remove them for cleaning and storage.

Joondanna Family Dental is proud to offer dental bridges as an option for patients who have missing teeth. We only use quality materials to create bridges that look great and are built to last. If you’re looking for an affordable, long-lasting tooth replacement option, dental bridges may be the right choice for you.

FAQs about Dental Bridges

The primary purpose of dental bridges is to replace missing teeth. Patients with one to three consecutive missing teeth are good candidates for bridges. They must also meet the following criteria:

  1. Generally in good health
  2. Must not have gum disease
  3. Both teeth adjacent to the gap must be sufficiently strong and healthy

Patients with gum disease should undergo gum disease treatment prior to getting dental bridges. If you prefer an implant-supported bridge, you must also have sufficient jawbone density. Before a dental bridge can be placed, a bone graft procedure could be performed.

Most dental bridges require at least two dental visits, each lasting one to two hours. Your second appointment may be one to two weeks later, when the dental bridge is ready for fitting.

The following are some reasons why you should consider replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge:

  • To restore your beautiful smile.
  • To regain your capacity to speak and chew properly.
  • To preserve your bite and prevent tooth fractures.
  • To keep your remaining teeth from shifting.
  • To prevent your face from sagging, as missing teeth can cause this problem.
Based on how well they are maintained, the lifespan of dental bridges can vary from person to person. Dental bridges are very durable, lasting about five to ten years. In fact, they can last for more than ten years as long as you take proper care of them and have regular dental check-ups.

A dental bridge cannot decay, but the teeth beneath it are still prone to tooth decay. Be sure to avoid the following:

  • Foods and drinks high in sugar:
    Sugary foods and drinks can leave behind particles that may breed harmful bacteria between or beneath dental bridges. It can cause your dental bridge to loosen or fall out.
  • Acidic drinks:
    Coffee, soda, and other acidic drinks can erode your natural tooth enamel. In addition, they can stain your teeth.
  • Sticky foods:
    Foods like caramel and gum can get stuck between your teeth and damage your bridge.
  • Hard foods:
    Hard foods such as ice can crack your bridge if you bite down on them.
If you maintain your dental bridge with proper oral hygiene, it can last for more than ten years. Maintaining your dental bridge requires brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily, just as you would with natural teeth. Regular dental visits are also recommended. In addition, it is best to avoid foods and drinks that are sugary, acidic, hard, sticky, and chewy.

The cost of dental bridge treatment varies depending on several factors, including the number of teeth in need of replacement, the bridge type, the complexity of the bridge placement, and whether additional dental work is required.

We recommend booking a consultation appointment with Joondanna Family Dental so that we can assess your dental needs and estimate your dental bridge cost more accurately.

The following are our recommendations for dental bridge alternatives:

  1. Partial Denture:
    Partial dentures are an affordable option for replacing missing teeth. Dentures, also called false teeth, are made of one or more artificial teeth and a metal and plastic framework that attaches to the remaining teeth.
  2. Dental Implant:
    An implant procedure replaces the root of a tooth by surgically embedding it in the jawbone. Implants are typically made from titanium alloy, a durable and biocompatible material. An abutment attaches the artificial tooth, typically a dental crown, or one of the crowns in a bridge, to the implant.
