A bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth.
There are several different types and your dental team will discuss with you the alternatives. All require some preparation of your teeth, we will then take impressions and our very skilled dental technician will construct the bridge in their dental laboratory. As some preparation of the adjacent teeth is required, you may prefer a dental implant as this doesn’t involve the neighbouring teeth. In the anterior region a special version named “Maryland-Bridge” can be an option, as it requires practically no preparation of the other teeth and gives fantastic esthetic results.
We will then fit the bridge at a later appointment and show you how to cleanse the bridge for optimal gum health. A bridge will give you both great aesthetics and great function and will serve you for many years to come with the correct maintenance programme, which we will advise.
