Dental Bridges

It can be extremely troubling when a person suffers from tooth loss. Missing teeth can make it difficult to conduct simple tasks like talking and eating, and the problem can ruin the look of a person’s smile. Additionally, untreated tooth loss can result in further problems, such as a loss of facial structure and jawbone deterioration. One way to prevent these issues is to install a dental bridge.

Sometimes referred to as partial dentures, dental bridges are used when a patient has lost multiple teeth. A dental bridge is comprised of natural-looking prosthetic teeth that are supported by the original teeth that are still inside the mouth. By using these existing structures as an anchor, dental bridges are designed to remain steady and secure at all times.

Dental bridges can be removable or fixed. Removable bridges make use of metal clasps or precision attachments to remain securely in place whenever they are being used; however, a removable bridge can also be easily taken out by the user for cleaning purposes. It can then be quickly re-inserted and used as normal. This makes removable bridges great for users who want a convenient solution for dealing with tooth loss.

Unlike removable bridges, fixed bridges cannot be removed except through oral surgery. Instead, this type of bridge will remain permanently attached inside the user’s mouth, most likely for the rest of their life. Fixed bridges use one of two methods to remain securely inside the mouth. The first method involves applying the bridge on top of implants. Alternatively, a fixed bridge can also be bonded directly to a person’s natural teeth, using these structures for support and stability. Fixed bridges are best for patients who want a permanent solution for tooth loss, treating their replacement teeth in a similar manner to their original ones.

If you would like to learn more about dental bridges and how they can be used to replace missing teeth, please call us at (773) 455-0885 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"
