Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a restorative dental procedure that is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of two or more crowns anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap, with an artificial tooth or teeth in between.

The process of getting a dental bridge usually involves a consultation with a dentist, a comprehensive dental exam, and the preparation of the supporting teeth. During the preparation phase, the teeth are reshaped to make room for the crowns that will be placed on them. Once the teeth have been prepared, impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab, where the bridge is custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth. In the meantime, the patient may receive a temporary bridge to protect the prepared teeth and maintain their appearance. When the permanent bridge is ready, the dentist removes the temporary bridge and cements the permanent bridge to the prepared teeth. The bridge is then adjusted to ensure a comfortable fit and proper bite.

Dental bridges offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, including improved function and appearance, as well as better oral health. They can also help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place and causing additional dental problems.

A dental bridge is a restorative dental procedure that replaces one or more missing teeth. It is made up of two or more crowns anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth or teeth in between.

To install a dental bridge, the supporting teeth are prepared by reshaping them to make room for the crowns. Impressions are then taken and sent to a dental lab to custom-make the bridge. Once the bridge is ready, it is cemented to the prepared teeth.

A dental bridge can last anywhere from 5 – 15 years, depending on the quality of materials used, oral hygiene practices, and other factors.

Getting a dental bridge is usually not painful, as it is done under local anaesthesia. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

To maintain a dental bridge, it is important to practise good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also recommended.

Yes, a dental bridge can be replaced if it becomes damaged or worn out over time.

Yes, there are alternative options to dental bridges, such as dental implants or partial dentures. It is important to consult with a dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your specific dental needs.

Initially, there may be a period of adjustment where you may experience some difficulty in eating or speaking. However, most patients adapt quickly and are able to enjoy normal speech and eating habits with their dental bridge.

Both the dental nurse and dentist were compassionate and caring. They made sure I was comfortable before carrying out any procedures, and spoke to me as I was a bit anxious about getting work done-
They were punctual, and managed to fit me in at the last minute. Easy to contact via WhatsApp, with quick response.

Been twice and both times the young dentist is extremely kind and reassuring. Had a tooth extraction today and was seamlessly done. My old dentist was quite rude and abrupt. I'm very glad to have found a dentist that takes pride in her work. Well done to all the team. Thank you so much.

Absolutely fantastic service!! I have had teeth out (well roots) had a new denture the service has been second to none. I have a real fear/phobia of dentists I explained this they have been so understanding and supportive. Simon explained every step clearly so I knew what was happening and at what stage. I can't reccomend him enough.

The staff were very good professional and friendly. Very accomadating to work/school scheduals with appointments. Me and my children had a good experience in the surgery. Also with colouring facilities available it helped to keep the children occupied. The head nurse was amazing and went above and beyond to meet all our needs.
