A dental bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants, which will eventually support the bridge.
Dental bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth.
There are three main types of dental bridges:
The materials used for the bridges include gold, porcelain fused to metal, or in the correct situation porcelain alone. The amount and type of reduction done to the abutment teeth varies slightly with the different materials used.
There is no fixed price for a dental bridge. Its cost will depend on the type of bridge as well as materials used.
After fitting a bridge you should pay particular attention to the false tooth that forms the bridge, but also all supporting teeth on either side. You should continue with your daily routine of brushing teeth twice a day and flossing. It all will definitely help to prevent any tooth decay and gum disease.
Our aim at The Cullen Dental Practice is to provide the very best treatment and advice for our patients.
