What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth by literally bridging the gap in your smile. Bridges are anchored to the adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. These anchoring teeth support an artificial tooth, known as a pontic, to “bridge” the space where your missing tooth used to be.

Bridges are often made of materials that closely match the color and shape of your natural teeth, like porcelain fused to metal or ceramic. The materials are molded into crowns that fit over the abutment teeth and support the artificial pontic between them. When properly cared for, dental bridges can last years and restore your smile functionally and aesthetically.

The Process of Getting a Bridge

The process of getting fitted for a dental bridge is straightforward, though it does require multiple appointments over several weeks.

First, Dr. Kraft will prepare the abutment teeth by gently reshaping them to properly fit the crowns that will anchor the bridge. Impressions are then taken of your teeth and gums to create temporary crowns and bridges. At this first visit, Dr. Kraft places these temporaries to make sure proper bite and comfort are achieved.

On the second visit a couple of weeks later, Dr. Kraft removes the temporaries and tries on the custom-made permanent bridge to check the fit before finally cementing it in place. Some additional adjustments may be needed during this try-in appointment before permanently fixing the bridge.

Getting used to your new bridge takes very little time. Proper oral hygiene is required to keep the abutment teeth and gums healthy. As with natural teeth, Dr. Kraft recommends brushing twice daily, flossing, and regular professional cleanings. By caring for your bridge properly, it can serve you well for over a decade.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

For residents of Brooklyn missing one or more teeth, dental bridges offer many benefits for restoring an attractive smile:

  • Maintains Face Shape and Appearance: Missing teeth can cause your face to appear sunken. Bridges prevent bone loss and aging effects.
  • Restores Ability to Chew and Speak: Food gets caught easily in gap spaces. Bridges allow proper biting, chewing, and clear speech.
  • Prevents Teeth Shifting: Missing teeth allow your other teeth to rotate or move into the space. Bridges replace the gap to keep other teeth in position.
  • Boosts Confidence and Comfort: Spaces from missing teeth can cause embarrassment and discomfort. Bridges allow you to smile, eat, and speak with confidence again.
  • Convenience vs Removable Dentures: Unlike removable partials, bridges stay firmly in place for convenience and a natural feel.

For tooth replacement in the Brooklyn area, dental bridges offer patients of Dr. Kraft a quick and comfortable solution for restoring dental function and facial aesthetics.

How painful is getting a bridge?

Getting a bridge requires very little discomfort. The only painful parts may be temporary sensitivity to hot and cold when the teeth are first prepared. Local anesthesia is used so you don’t feel any pain during the procedure.

Do bridges fall out?

When properly fitted and cared for, bridges are firmly secured and should not fall out unexpectedly. Bridges are anchored to the adjacent natural teeth, which provide support. Proper oral hygiene is crucial to ensuring dental bridges last over 10 years on average.

Do bridges ruin teeth?

The abutment teeth supporting the bridge need to be reshaped so the bridge can be properly secured. As long as these anchoring teeth remain healthy, they support a bridge for many years without further damage. Regular dental checkups help monitor the health of abutment teeth.

How do I clean around my bridge?

Use floss threaders and interdental brushes to thoroughly clean around the bridge. Pay special attention to flossing underneath the artificial tooth where bacteria can collect. Regular brushing and flossing keeps the bridge and anchoring teeth plaque-free.
