What Is A Dental Bridge?

Missing teeth can affect more than just your appearance — the gaps left behind can allow the surrounding teeth to move out of their proper place. This can lead to extra tension in your bite, increased pain when you chew, or even trouble speaking. A dental bridge improves the health and appearance of your smile by covering spaces using a false tooth supported by either crowns, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC in Grand Ledge, MI, our dentists offer dental bridges with high-quality materials to help give you back your smile. If you have gaps in your smile, schedule a consultation with Dr. Todd K. Baum to get more information about how a custom bridge may help.

Dental bridges offer many advantages for people needing to repair lost teeth and refresh their oral health and appearance. Bridges from Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC can:

  • Distribute bite strength evenly to protect your natural teeth
  • Require minimal maintenance
  • Uphold the standard outline of your face
  • Recover better chewing and speaking proficiency
  • Boost your smile's look by filling in spacing
  • Block existing teeth from shifting out of position
  • Repair confidence and enhance comprehensive wellness
  • Uphold the facial muscles, sustaining a younger-looking aesthetic
  • Give a resilient and prolonged tooth replacement resolution

What Can I Expect Getting A Dental Bridge?

After filing down the surrounding teeth to prepare them, Dr. Baum will take digital scans of your mouth that will be used to craft your custom bridge. If needed, a temporary bridge or restoration can be placed while your custom one is being made. Once your restoration is ready, we'll numb the treatment area and attach the bridge using either dental cement or implants. When the bridge is in place, Dr. Baum will carefully adjust it so it feels comfortable and remains set. You should notice an improvement in the function and appearance of your teeth. At home, you should care for your dental bridge by brushing and flossing regularly, taking special care to keep it clean. You may need a follow-up visit at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC to alter the fit of your bridge if it feels loose in the first few weeks after placement. During future visits to our office, we'll continue to monitor the bridge to make sure it's still healthy and fits comfortably.

Who Is A Candidate for Dental Bridges?

People with missing teeth don't merely have an appearance problem — gaps between your smile can have a powerful impact on your oral health. The fact is that your mouth is carefully balanced, and missing teeth can affect its function. With time, gaps can lead to teeth shifting, causing problems with your bite (overbite, underbite, crossbite) and gum or jawbone atrophy. A dental bridge requires the surrounding teeth to be strong enough to hold the restoration, including good jawbone density and gum tissue. Dr. Baum will assess your gums and jaw at your consultation to help you choose the best type of bridge (traditional, cantilever, resin bonded, or Maryland bonded) and material (ceramic, porcelain, metal, and porcelain fused to metal).
