Bridges in Helensvale

Dental bridges are a time-tested solution for replacing missing teeth. They effectively restore function and appearance, bridging the gap where one or more teeth may be missing. The bridge is anchored by crowns on either side of the gap, providing stability and support.

How Missing Teeth Impact Dental Health

When you lose a tooth, it affects more than just your smile. It can impact your ability to chew and speak and, over time, cause your remaining teeth to shift.

Dental bridges help prevent these issues, restoring your mouth’s overall function and maintaining your facial structure.

Types of Dental Bridges

Here are some of the different types of dental bridges available:

  • Traditional: As the most common type, conventional bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth held in place by dental crowns.
  • Cantilever: This type is anchored on just one side, relying on the support of a single natural tooth or dental implant adjacent to the gap.
  • Maryland: This bridge replaces one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth using metal or ceramic wings. Unlike a traditional bridge, a Maryland bridge is bonded to the back of adjacent teeth, preserving the structure of the natural teeth without the need for extensive reshaping.

What Are the Benefits?

Beyond filling in gaps in your smile, dental bridges offer significant benefits. They restore your ability to chew and speak properly, maintain the shape of your face, distribute the forces in your bite properly, and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position. Bridges offer a viable alternative for patients unsuitable for dentures or implants.
