What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a structure between two crowns to fill the gap between missing teeth.
There are three main types of dental bridge:
- Traditional bridges fit over the remaining dental structure and hold the replacement tooth (the pontic) in place.
- A cantilever bridge is one whereby there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
- A Maryland bonded bridge consists of plastic teeth or gums supported by a metal wings on each side of the bridge and are bonded on to the existing and remaining teeth.
All three forms of bridge require expertise and knowledge to ensure that they carry out their main function of providing you with the ability to chew with equal distribution of force throughout your remaining teeth and, in more extreme cases, restore your ability to speak clearly and maintain the shape of your face.
To ensure the best chance of a successful procedure there needs to be strong teeth on either side of the gap that is to be filled. Strong teeth are required as they need to hold the dental crowns that will support the replacement tooth.
Dental bridges, subject to good oral hygiene and regular check-ups, have an expected life span between 5 to 15 years.
As previously mentioned this is a skilled procedure and a lack of care or skill on the part of your dentist can lead to problems and issues that may be regarded as negligent.
Problems associated with dental crowns can include:
- Poorly made and fitted crowns that lead to decay of the supporting crown
- Damage to nerves during the actual fitting procedure
- Shattered crowns preventing further dental work being carried out
- Failure to ensure that the supporting tooth/teeth are adequate, leading to the failure of the fitting.
