Tooth Bridge

Tooth Bridge

Have you ever wondered what is a dental bridge and how can it restore your mouth’s function?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that is anchored to the remaining teeth on either side of the gap. It is named dental bridge because it literally bridges the gap between two healthy teeth.

This procedure is a popular alternative to dental implants and can also restore the appearance and function of your teeth.

A tooth bridge is a prosthetic device that spans the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, which are cemented in place by dental crowns on the adjacent teeth.

A bridge dental does not only fill the space left by missing teeth but also prevents the surrounding natural teeth from shifting out of alignment.

There are several benefits of having a tooth bridge:

  • The artificial teeth blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, giving you a natural and complete smile.
  • A dental bridge restores your chewing function which was compromised when you had your teeth extracted or removed.
  • A tooth bridge can improve your speaking function especially if you were once missing a front tooth or teeth.
  • A bridge can maintain the shape and structure of your face. When teeth are missing, facial muscles can sag, resulting in a sunken appearance.


To ensure the longevity of your dental bridge, proper oral hygiene is crucial. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are essential to keep the bridge clean and healthy.

If taken care of properly, a bridge can last you a long time of function and aesthetics.
