Dental Bridge Procedure

The procedure of installing a dental bridge involves several steps. First, the dentist will prepare the abutment teeth, which are the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth. The dentist will then take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory to create your custom bridge. For traditional bridges, this usually takes up to several weeks, which is very inconvenient for pages. That is why at Vaksman Dental Group we same day bridges that are ready in just one visit. While the process only takes one day, the bridges are 100% adjusted for your comfort and fit.

Dental Bridges vs. Implants

Implants and dental bridges are both dental procedures used to replace missing teeth. While both procedures can provide excellent results, there are some key differences between the two. Bridges are a more affordable option and require less invasive surgery. However, dental implants are a more permanent solution, with a higher success rate, and can last longer.

Dental Bridges FAQ

A dental bridge is a dental procedure used to replace missing teeth. The bridge consists of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth in between.

There are traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bridges, and implant-supported bridges.

The number of teeth on a dental bridge can vary depending on the location of the missing tooth or teeth. In general, bridges can range from one to several teeth.

The lifespan of a dental bridge depends on several factors, including the patient's oral hygiene, the location of the bridge in the mouth, and the type of dental bridge used. Generally, bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years. With proper care and maintenance, your dental bridge can last even longer.
