Dental Bridges Essex

Bridges can help to keep your teeth, real or crowned in the right place.

How Can Bridges Help You?

If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a bridge. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out.

Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing. Once you have a bridge fitted at our dentist in Essex, you will have to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and that you can prevent bad breath.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a dental bridge last?

When well looked after, a dental bridge can last several years. Typically, our patients benefit from up to 15 years or more with their new dental bridge, and there are things you can do to ensure you get the best out of yours by:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene
  • Keeping up with regular check-ups with your dentist

Is getting a dental bridge painful?

Although having a dental bridge fitted is invasive, it shouldn’t be painful. Before we start the procedure, we will ensure the area is completely numbed, so the only discomfort you should feel will be the numbing injection. This will ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free for the duration of your treatment.

Does a dental bridge feel natural?

Although it’s completely normal to experience some discomfort at first as the area heals, your dental bridge should eventually feel just the same as your natural teeth did. In some cases where previously a patient has had fillings in their teeth, a dental bridge has felt even better and offered a feeling of restoration.

Does food get stuck under a dental bridge?

Because of the nature of a dental bridge, it is possible for food to become lodged beneath it. This is quite normal, but it’s important to maintain strong oral hygiene and to keep up with dental appointments so that your dentist can make sure no food is stuck beneath your bridge.
