Bridges

Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and are fixed in position. There are various types and can be supported by implants or neighbouring natural teeth. Sometimes the support teeth are prepared for crowns (if they are heavily restored already) or the bridge may be bonded adhesively to a sound support tooth.

You might choose to have a bridge for cosmetic purposes if there is an unsightly gap in the smile or for functional reasons.

Treatment Steps

Aftercare

Good oral hygiene is essential to ensure the longevity of your bridge. It is especially important to clean under the false tooth, as well as brushing and flossing regularly and your dentist/hygienist will demonstrate the best ways to do this.

If bridges are well looked after, and that includes keeping the surrounding teeth healthy so they can continue to provide a solid foundation, they should last for many years.
