Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is actually made up of false teeth that bridge the gap formed by one or more missing teeth. The false tooth is called a pontic that will be fused in between two crowns and work as anchors by attaching to your teeth on either side of the false tooth, bridging the gap. Either natural teeth or dental implants can support these bridges.

At Camden High Street Dental Practice, our dentists have the skills and experience to offer the advanced dental techniques needed to form bridges that help teeth function properly. Dental bridges will last for several years with proper care and maintenance.

Types of dental bridge:

Traditional fixed dental bridge – Your “false tooth” gets fused between two porcelain crowns to fill the gap left by a missing tooth. There are two crowns that hold it in its place by attaching onto your teeth on either side of the false tooth. This kind of dental bridge is used for replacing one or more teeth.

Cantilever dental bridge – Your dentist may use a cantilever bridge for mouth areas that are under less stress like the front teeth. A cantilever dental bridge is used when a “false tooth” is only supported on one side. The result will be aesthetic but fewer teeth will be treated in this instance.

Resin bonded dental bridges / Maryland dental bridge – This kind of dental bridge is used for the front teeth. The benefit is that your teeth will either need no or minimal preparation. The “false tooth” will then be fused to ceramic or metal “wings” that are bonded firmly to the “abutment” teeth with resin. The wings are invisible so that the porcelain looks like a natural tooth.

Implant supported dental bridges – Implants are a great way of replacing a missing tooth. An implant will be placed in the bone where the root of the tooth was. When it fuses to the bone, it will be restored with crowns or if more than one tooth is missing, then an implant supported bridge may help. In case you do not have any teeth in one or both the jaws, implant may be placed and an implant supported bridge can be fixed securely.

Procedure for dental bridges:

  • The surrounding tooth/teeth are thoroughly evaluated and then an X-ray will be taken to ensure the tooth/teeth roots are healthy.
  • The adjacent tooth will be prepared and digital scans taken. A temporary restoration is then provided.
  • The iTero handheld wand will take a digital and 3D image of teeth and prevent the need for impressions that may cause some patients to feel suppressed. The digital image will then be sent to the laboratory and work may begin on the construction of bridge immediately.
  • The final bridge will be fitted after the time span of two times.

Dental bridges can last for 5 to 7 years or even longer. By maintaining good dental care habits, cleaning mouth regularly and seeing the dentist, the fixed bridge can last for more than 10 years.

It is usually not difficult to eat with fixed bridges, which are sealed to the supported teeth and connected to the crown. With a fixed bridge, you can eat, chew, sip and swallow easily.

Dental bridges usually require 2 dental visits with a 1 to 2 weeks gap in between.

There are certain situations when the teeth needed to support the bridge might not be strong enough. Your dentist will suggest the right way to replace missing teeth.

There are few steps that can help in keeping your bridge clean and extend its life. The Camden High Street Dental Practice suggests following these steps to ensure proper care of bridges:

  • Brush two times a day with fluoride toothpaste that will help to keep your mouth clean and healthy.
  • Floss once daily to get rid of small food particles that may get stuck in between the teeth.
  • See your dentist once in every six months for thorough mouth cleaning.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet that is high in vegetables, fruits and fiber.

Had an appointment with Dr Romain Prassad today what a lovely and kind dentist really put me at ease and is doing everything he can to help save my tooth thankyou so much ☺️

Tor M.

I had a wisdom tooth removed and a filling today, I cannot fault my treatment! My dentist was very skilled and calming! I didn’t even feel the injections! Restored my faith in dentists! TOO CLASS!!

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Dr Yasha saw me when my teeth were a mess, I was super self conscious about it and it was affecting my life really negatively. I needed 3 bridges, which are still holding up great, and I’m on the practice plan so have the motivation to go in for regular hygienist and checkup appointments. Not only is my oral health better than ever, my overall wellbeing and peace of mind is immeasurably improved. The care and consistency of treatment I’ve received from Dr Yasha and hygienist Ramin has made going to the dentist (almost) a pleasure. 100% would recommend. Really great people doing excellent work.
