Revive Your Smile with Dental Bridges

Dental bridges serve as a reliable means to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits. Whether it's due to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma, missing teeth can affect oral health and chewing function. 

Moreover, advancements in dental technology provide a permanent fixture, prevent bone loss in the jaw, promoting long-term oral health. With careful consideration of factors such as oral hygiene, surrounding teeth, and the desired outcome, dental bridges can effectively restore both the function and aesthetics of a smile, offering patients a lasting solution for missing teeth.

Addressing Missing Teeth with Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a versatile solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. They bridge the gap created by missing teeth, restoring chewing ability, speech clarity, and facial aesthetics. At Innova Dental, we treat various dental issues with bridges, including:

Single Missing Tooth

Bridges provide a fixed replacement for a single missing tooth, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting out of alignment.

Bone Loss Prevention

The presence of teeth helps stimulate the underlying jawbone, preventing bone loss. Dental bridges replace missing teeth, preserving bone density and facial structure.

Multiple Missing Teeth

Whether consecutive or non-consecutive, bridges offer a seamless solution for restoring multiple missing teeth.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges are permanently fixed in place, providing stability and durability.

By filling in gaps caused by missing teeth, bridges restore proper speech articulation and clarity.

Bridges help distribute chewing forces evenly across adjacent teeth, reducing the risk of wear and tear.

Dental bridges restore functionality and aesthetics, allowing patients to smile, speak, and eat with confidence.

Bridges are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile.

Dental Bridges vs. Dental Implants: Choosing the Right Tooth Replacement Option

When considering options for tooth replacement, patients often weigh the benefits of dental bridges against dental implants. Both solutions offer effective ways to restore missing teeth and improve oral health, but they have distinct differences. Here are three key points to consider when comparing dental bridges and dental implants:

Layer 2

Treatment Process and Timeframe

Dental bridges typically require less time to complete compared to dental implants. While bridges can be fabricated and placed in just a few visits to the dentist, dental implants involve a longer treatment process that includes surgical placement of the implant, and attachment of the artificial tooth or crown. As a result, the overall treatment timeframe for dental implants is usually longer than that of dental bridges.


Longevity and Durability


Dental implants are known for lasting a lifetime with proper care. Since implants are surgically anchored into the jawbone, they provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth and help preserve jawbone health. In contrast, dental bridges rely on adjacent teeth or dental implants for support. While bridges can also be long-lasting with good oral hygiene habits, they may require replacement or maintenance over time, especially if the supporting teeth experience issues.

Group (2)

Aesthetic and Tooth Preservation

Dental bridges and dental implants both offer natural-looking results that blend with the surrounding teeth. However, dental implants provide a more independent solution, as they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. This can be advantageous for preserving the integrity of adjacent teeth, as dental bridges require the preparation of healthy teeth to serve as abutments. Additionally, dental implants stimulate the jawbone, helping prevent bone loss and maintaining facial aesthetics over time.

Types of Dental Bridges

Understanding the different types of dental bridges allows patients to make informed decisions about which option best suits their needs, whether they require a permanent fixture to replace missing teeth or a temporary solution while awaiting further treatment. 

Traditional Dental Bridges

Traditional dental bridges are the most common type and are used when there are natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by missing teeth. These bridges consist of false teeth (pontics) fused between two dental crowns, which are then placed over the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth) and secured with dental cement.

Maryland Bridges

Maryland bridges, also known as resin-bonded bridges, are ideal when only one abutment tooth is available on one side of the gap. The false tooth is held in place by a porcelain framework bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth using dental cement. This type of bridge preserves the structure of the adjacent teeth as they require minimal preparation.

Cantilever Bridges

Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges but are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the gap. The false tooth is supported by a single abutment tooth, which means less preparation is needed on the adjacent tooth compared to traditional bridges. However, this type of bridge may exert more pressure on the supporting tooth.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are an excellent option for replacing several teeth or a full arch of teeth. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots, onto which the bridge is securely attached. This type of bridge offers superior stability and prevents bone loss by stimulating the jawbone like natural tooth roots.
