What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a custom-made replacement for one or more missing teeth that literally bridges the gap created when teeth are lost. The traditional fixed bridge, the most common type, involves creating a crown for the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. At Longpoint Dental, the team uses the latest technology to craft bridges for your teeth that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.

How Long Will A Tooth Bridge Last?

A dental bridge, with proper care and maintenance, can last 10-15 years or even longer. Factors such as the material chosen, the health of the adjacent teeth, and overall oral hygiene play a crucial role. At Longpoint Dental, we use high-quality materials for our fixed bridges to ensure maximum longevity and provide detailed guidance to our patients on maintaining their dental bridges.

Benefits of a Dental Bridge

Opting for a bridge comes with numerous benefits:

  • Restores your ability to chew and speak properly.
  • Maintains the shape of your face, preventing the sunken appearance associated with missing teeth.
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
  • Prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Offers a permanent, non-removable solution, unlike traditional dentures.

At Longpoint Dental, we ensure that each permanent dental bridge is tailored to provide these long-term benefits, enhancing not only your oral health but also your overall quality of life.

Getting a dental bridge at Longpoint Dental involves a detailed and careful process:

  • Initial Consultation: Dr. Ellis evaluates your oral health and discusses your expectations.
  • Preparation: Adjacent teeth are prepared to support the bridge.
  • Impressions: Detailed impressions are made to craft a bridge that fits perfectly.
  • Fitting: A temporary bridge is set while your permanent bridge is prepared.
  • Placement: The bridge is fitted, adjusted, and cemented into place.

Throughout the process, your comfort and well-being are our utmost priorities. Our team ensures a seamless and efficient experience, leaving no questions unanswered.
