Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a permanent, fixed replacement for a missing teeth and sometimes for several missing teeth. We generally use two types of bridge;

 

  • a fixed dental bridge or an
  • adhesive “Maryland” style dental bridge.

 

A fixed bridge is used when teeth either side of the gap have already been crowned or have fillings in. These teeth are then prepared and our award winning technician will then construct the bridge in their laboratory.

An adhesive type bridge is used when we want to fill a gap where the teeth either side have had little or no work on them. This is Minimally Invasive Dentistry, an aspect of dentistry we fully embrace and try wherever possible to use. Again the bridge is constructed in the laboratory by our technician.

 

Both of these types of bridge require a second appointment to fit into position permanently. You will then be shown how to care for the bridge and arrangements made for regular dental hygiene reviews.
