Do You Need a Bridge?
Like other things, teeth need each other for support. When one tooth is lost, the biting force changes on the teeth next to the space, and they begin to shift. When a tooth no longer has anything to chew against, it begins to extrude out of the socket. You can eventually end up losing the tooth.

Alternatives to dental Bridges
When you're missing one or more teeth, you have several options:   Delay treatment, Implants, Partial denture, Space maintainer, and Bridge. Delaying treatment is the least desirable option. Things will only get worse.

Placing a Three-Unit Bridge on Front Teeth
It takes two appointments to replace a missing front tooth with a three-unit bridge. That's because a bridge is custom-crafted in a dental laboratory to precisely fit your teeth. To make the entire procedure comfortable for you, the first thing your dentist will do is make sure you're thoroughly numb.

All-Porcelain Dental Bridges
New breakthroughs in adhesives and stronger porcelain materials now make it possible to create bridges entirely from porcelain. All-porcelain bridges maintain a translucency that makes them difficult to tell from real teeth.

Post-Op Instructions: After Receiving a Crown or Bridge
On rare occasions, temporary crowns come off. Call your dentist if this happens, and keep the temporary so it can be re-cemented. It's very important for the proper fit of your final restoration that temporaries stay in place. It's normal to experience some sensitivity to heat, cold and pressure after each appointment.

Caring for Your Dental Bridge
A dental bridge depends on the health of the adjacent teeth and gums for support. To care for your bridge, brush and floss normally after each meal.
