There are various sorts of dental bridges. Your dentist will suggest the most suitable one based on the positioning of the lost tooth (or teeth) and also the status of your teeth, gums, and mouth.

Conventional bridges are used when you can find natural teeth on all sides of the gap in which the enamel is lost. As an alternate to your bridge, your dentist may indicate just one implant to replace a lost tooth involving two healthy teeth.

The Dental Bridge Procedure

1. In case you've got healthy teeth on each side of a tooth, your dentist files down both healthy teeth to prepare them for the bridge. If you do not have healthy teeth enough to support a bridge, then dental implants could be placed.

A dental implant is an artificial root made from titanium metal that's placed into the jawbone to replace the origin of the tooth. The augmentation functions as the anchor to maintain an artificial tooth or bridge in place.

2. Meanwhile your dentist puts a temporary bridge inside your mouth to protect the vulnerable gums and teeth.

3. During your next visit, your dentist eliminates the temporary bridge and puts that custom-made bridge on your mouth. The crowns are cemented to your own 2 healthy teeth attached to some dental implants on either side of the tooth (or teeth).
