Dental Bridges

What problem does it solve?

Bridges can be placed on natural teeth or implants. Their primary role is to replace one or more missing teeth.

Expected treatment time or appointment:

2-3 appointments, 30-60 mins/appointment

A dental bridge is a row of crowns meant to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Bridges are not just aesthetic: they are needed for regular mouth functions, otherwise, you may potentially start to experience further damage.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a row of dental crowns or artificial teeth that are set in some kind of artificial gum material or other kind of stabilising materials. The artificial gum is usually resin or a metal base covered with some kind of soft, hypoallergenic material. The crowns can be made of anything, but are usually tooth coloured porcelain with a metal or zirconia internal structure.

Bridges look like a number of teeth next to each other, because that is exactly what they are meant to replace; numerous teeth that are missing next to each other.

Dental bridges are very often the solution to recurring problems and to numerous teeth being bad in the same place. By getting some tooth stubs extracted, or getting them shaped to be able to hold a dental bridge, you will be regaining proper chewing function, which will preserve the rest of your teeth, guaranteeing that they have a longer life.

Also eliminate numerous problems that are caused by chewing only one side, like back and neck pains, TMJ issues, jaw pain and speech impediments.

Traditional dental bridges

dental bridge review Forest & Ray Dentist

These dental bridges work by essentially creating caps that go on top of existing teeth, and covering the edentulous, or toothless area with a bridge. In order to get this kind of dental bridge, you need teeth on both sides of the toothless area (back in the day, just one side was enough, but this puts too much pressure on the tooth acting as the abutment, and can damage the tooth, so is no longer recommended).

The teeth are shaped and filed down, and a crown goes on top of them, and they act as abutments, holding the bridge in place. These dental crowns are adhered to the tooth stubs.3d render of jaw with teeth and maryland bridge in gums isolated over white background

The Maryland bridge

This dental bridge is fairly typical and common.. The Maryland dental bridge requires some additional work on the teeth next to it, because the bridge comes with little wings that attach to the adjacent teeth. These teeth will need to be shaped to be able to hold the wings, and to keep the Maryland bridge stable. Any number of teeth can be replaced using this method, but you do need to have some teeth in the mouth to stabilise the dental bridge.

Dental Bridge LondonDental implant supported bridges

Dental bridges do not necessarily need teeth to hold them in place. Dental bridges can be anchored to the mouth via dental implants, even if there are no teeth on the arch. An entire arch, or just a couple of teeth can both be replaced via dental implant supported bridges; all teeth can be replaced using 4 or 6 dental implants. Although more expensive, there are definite advantages to having this kind of procedure, as you can get fixed or removable dental bridges, and they will be guaranteed to last long, as they will not be linked to a tooth, but rather to a dental implant.

The northern part of the borough is home to Kentish Town, Hampstead, and Hampstead Heath, which are less populous districts. Numerous parks and open areas may be found in the London Borough of Camden. City of Westminster (near Soho, London) and the City of London are the next-door boroughs, followed by Brent to the west of what was once Roman Watling Street (now the A5 Road), Barnet and Haringey to the north, and Islington to the east. It encompasses all or a portion of the following postcode areas: N1, N6, N7, N19, NW1, NW2, NW3, NW5, NW6, NW8, EC1, WC1, WC2, W1, and W9.
