Bridges
Whenever there is a tooth missing with teeth present adjacent to this space then it can be replaced by a bridge which is a fixed replacement option. Bridge takes support from adjacent teeth to replace the missing tooth. What is a bridge or fixed bridge?
A bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth. It is called a fixed bridge because it is not removable.
A bridge is a structure, supported by teeth on either side of a space.
It spans the gap between teeth, just as a bridge spans a river.
What is the procedure for making a bridge
The first step is to prepare the supports for the bridge. Replacement crowns are placed over existing teeth as supports for a bridge.
- The dentist prepares down the teeth on either side of the gap, and takes an impression of the prepared teeth.
- This is then sent to the dental technicianlab where the bridge is made.
- The technician will make a replacement crown for each prepared tooth.
- These crowns are joined to an artificial tooth, which replaces the missing tooth.
- The dentist will then cement the completed bridge over the prepared teeth.
How will my prepared teeth be protected until I receive my bridge?
The dentist will make and install a temporary acrylic bridge that will protect the teeth and prevent sensitivity. You can eat normally with a temporary bridge. It will also look reasonably ok in case of the front teeth.
