Dental Bridges in Edmonton
Adental bridge is a common treatment for missing teeth that fills the gaps left in the mouth when teeth are lost. Bridges typically comprise one or more pontics, or artificial teeth, which can be held in place by dental implants or crowns (called abutments). The pontics used in bridges are most commonly made from porcelain for aesthetic considerations; however a variety of materials, including silver amalgam or gold, can also be used.
To place a bridge, your dentist will first secure crowns to the teeth on either side of a gap before anchoring the pontic or pontics (the bridge) to fill the space. When using dental implants to anchor a bridge, the implants would first need to be completed and then a bridge installed. Dental implants mimic the entire structure of missing teeth, including the roots, making them a strong and stable method of securing bridges. Bridges have significant aesthetic and practical benefits for patients with more than one missing tooth. Having a bridge placed in those gaps can restore dental functionality and with today’s modern materials, bridges are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
