Have you lost a tooth or two? Find out if a dental bridge is right for you. We often recommend this treatment for those who:

  • Are missing one or more teeth
  • Have an otherwise strong, stable bite
  • Aren’t interested in surgical treatment

We’ll evaluate your needs and help you decide if a bridge is the best option for your health and future.

Missing teeth are not only aesthetically unappealing, but the absence of teeth can also lead to certain oral health problems and bite misalignment. There are several ways missing teeth can be replaced, dental bridges being one of them.

Dental bridges are a procedure, available at our dental clinic in Panchsheel Park New Delhi, and Sushant Lok and Tata Primanti, Gurgaon, to replace a missing tooth. Missing teeth don’t only appear unsightly, but can also cause an irregular bite, gum disease, and remaining teeth to rotate or shift out of place.

A dental bridge is so called because it is used to bridge the gap created by a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The gap is bridged by inserting an artificial tooth, known as a pontic, in the gap, which is anchored in place by attaching it to the teeth on either side of the gap, known as abutments, through the use of crowns.

How Does a Dental Bridge Work?

A tooth bridge fills the empty space in your mouth — typically without the need for surgery — and can be completed in as little as 2-3 weeks. In some cases, we may recommend placing implants on either side of the gap to serve as the attachment point for your bridge. In others, your neighbouring healthy teeth may be covered with a crown which will then hold the bridge in place.

Why Choose a Dental Bridge?

Each tooth replacement option has its own advantages. Dental bridges, for instance, are the treatment of choice for some patients because of the following benefits:

  • The convenience of a fixed appliance means you do not have to remove it each night like removable dentures
  • Anchor to other teeth provides a stable, secure appliance for eating, speaking, and laughing
  • Restores an aesthetically pleasing smile

At The Dental Roots, New Delhi, and Gurgaon, our experienced dentists regularly use dental implants to make dental bridges even more secure. For an implant-supported bridge, the tooth crowns are attached to dental implants instead of natural teeth. For this reason, this type of dental bridge is used when two or more teeth are missing.

When is a Bridge Required?

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining.
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
  • Restore a fractured tooth.
  • Cover a dental implant.
  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth.
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
  • Bridges are commonly used if you’re missing one or more teeth. They cover the space where the teeth are missing and are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space.

What To Expect When Getting a Bridge:

  • You won’t feel any discomfort as the entire procedure is done under local anaesthesia.
  • Your dentist will prepare your tooth which may involve extractions and root canal treatments.
  • An impression of the prepared area is taken to create a bridge that fits into your mouth appropriately.
  • A temporary bridge is placed until the permanent one is ready.
  • In a few days, a permanent bridge is placed with the help of special cement.
  • Once the bridge gets bonded to the tooth, the dentist will ensure that it matches the function and appearance of your teeth.
  • Neighbouring teeth are prepared to act as the “anchor” for your dental bridge
  • A temporary bridge is placed to protect your teeth and gums
  • The final restoration is custom-made to fit your mouth and looks just like your real teeth
  • We’ll bond the finished bridge into place to complete your restoration

How Do You Care for a Dental Bridge?

dental-bridges

Dental bridges are cared for in the same manner as your natural teeth with a few fairly important exceptions.

Do

  • Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to brush after every meal and snack
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Visit our office every six months for cleanings

Do Not

  • Use abrasive toothpaste (baking soda, charcoal, etc.)
  • Bite ice or hard candy
  • Chew non-food items like pens

We will provide clear and easy-to-follow instructions after placing your dental bridge to help ensure both your restorations and your natural teeth retain their function and beauty for years to come.

Questions To Ask Your Doctor

How much does a dental bridge treatment cost?

The cost of a dental bridge depends on the number of teeth you are replacing, the location of your missing teeth, and whether or not you need additional care as part of the treatment (such as dental implants). Get in touch with us for a consultation and cost estimate.

How long will a dental bridge last?

Most dental bridges will last for 5-15 years or even longer. Help increase the durability of your bridge through proper at-home hygiene and regular exams and check-ups.

Whatever I can write about the team at The Dental Roots will not provide justice to their world class customer service, period. I firmly believed that honest and dedicated customer service only existed in countries such as USA where I lived for a while. But, my experience with Dental Roots has turned that perception upside down. Seven and a half years ago I had my root canal and crown treatment done with them. There was a minor chipping of the crown recently. I am no longer living in Gurugram but I was in Delhi/NCR for other work for less than a week and when I approached the Dental Roots with my concern, immediately Dr Dheeraj removed the defective crown and got me a replacement crown in just two days, all of this was done at zero fee, even after seven and a half years! Their facilities are world class and hygienic with five star like ambience. Everyone from receptionist to doctors and assistants are highly professional and responsive to customer needs. Highly recommend them!

Had an awesome session at The Dental Roots Clinic with Dr.Ritika She is a really good professional and a great person! I had a great time during my visit to The Dental Roots clinic. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's team of Doctors are highly professional, they listened to my concerns patiently and after sharing the overview, I had Teeth Whitening treatment done. Dr.Dheeraj Setia's staff followed proper sanitization procedures and ambience of the setup is very pleasing.

Dr.Ritika showed so much care and concern that I forgot that she is my dentist and came back earning a friend in her! I strongly recommend The Dental Roots Clinic
