What Are the Types of Dental Bridges?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the different styles of bridges and how they are placed.

There are various types of dental bridges available to address different situations. First, there’s the traditional dental bridge used when you have a single missing tooth. In this case, we place crowns on the adjacent teeth and a crown to replace the missing tooth, creating a single unit. On the other hand, an implant-supported bridge offers remarkable advantages over a tooth-supported bridge. While a tooth-supported bridge can last a long time, it can also pose risks to the supporting teeth.

With an implant-supported bridge, we place dental implants and can affix the bridge on the same day, providing a more secure and stable solution. Dental bridges can also be used when you’re missing all of your teeth, replacing all of them with a single bridge that functions similarly to your natural teeth. It’s like having your own teeth restored. If you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to contact us, and we’ll be happy to discuss these options further with you. Have a great day.
