Dental Bridge

Missing teeth can occur for various reasons. Dental bridges help fill these gaps by utilizing the support from adjacent teeth. They are often constructed with metal-supported materials, such as porcelain or zirconium. The types of dental bridge treatments include traditional dental bridges, Maryland bridges, and implant-supported bridges, with the traditional bridge being the most common.

The duration can vary depending on the patient’s dental condition, the treatment plan, and laboratory processes. However, with advancements in dental technology, a dental bridge can typically be fabricated within 2-4 days.

The process starts with an examination and preparation of the teeth. Impressions are then taken and sent to the laboratory. A temporary bridge may be placed during this phase. Once the bridge is ready, the dentist will fit it and securely bond it to the teeth within 2-4 days, depending on the fabrication process.

The average lifespan of a dental bridge is 10-15 years, but with proper care, they can last up to 25 years.

When properly fitted and adjusted by our expert dentists at Clinic EGO, dental bridges should not impact your speech abilities. Any initial difficulties usually resolve within a short adjustment period.

Dental bridges restore chewing function by replacing missing teeth. They offer a permanent solution, and the treatment process is typically swift.

Dental bridges can sometimes cause tooth sensitivity. However, with your dentist’s guidance, this sensitivity can be managed effectively.

When properly fitted and made from suitable materials, dental bridges can closely resemble the feel of natural teeth.

Apart from regular oral hygiene practices and maintaining a healthy diet, dental bridges do not require additional maintenance.

Foods that are sticky, acidic, alcoholic, hard, or extreme in temperature (either hot or cold) should be avoided.

The choice between dental bridges and implants should be made after a thorough examination by a dentist, who will select the most suitable method and develop a treatment plan accordingly.
