Dental Bridges Q & A

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are a type of restoration used to fill a gap caused by a missing tooth. If you lose a permanent tooth, your risk of gum recession and bone loss increases significantly. 

Dental bridges can restore your smile to its near-original condition while preventing your surrounding teeth from shifting.

What are the types of dental bridges?

The team at Chauvin Family Dentistry offers several types of dental bridges, including:

Traditional bridge

If you have two healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, consider a traditional bridge. A traditional bridge includes a prosthetic tooth and two dental crowns. The team at Chauvin Family Dentistry bonds the two crowns to your abutment teeth, restoring your smile and your chewing and biting abilities.

Cantilever bridge

If you only have one healthy tooth on either side of the gap in your smile, the team might recommend a cantilever bridge. A cantilever bridge includes an artificial tooth and a single crown. The team bonds the crown to only one abutment tooth, allowing you to chew and bite comfortably.

Maryland bridge

A Maryland bridge is like a traditional bridge, but instead of two crowns it relies on a metal framework for support. The team at Chauvin Family Dentistry uses dental cement to bond the metal framework to the back of your abutment teeth on either side of the gap in your smile.

Implant-supported bridge

If you want a dental bridge that lasts for decades, consider an implant-supported bridge. An implant-supported bridge connects to a dental implant — a titanium post placed into your jaw during an outpatient procedure. Implant-supported bridges are tough and durable. With good oral hygiene, an implant-supported bridge can last for the rest of your life.

Are dental bridges right for me?

To determine if dental bridges are right for you, the team at Chauvin Family Dentistry conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and discusses your goals for treatment. They then take oral X-rays to determine the health of your jaw and the surrounding abutment teeth.

After gathering the necessary information, the team can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your budget and needs.
