Dental Bridge Q & A

A dental bridge is an oral prosthetic used to replace one or several permanent teeth. A bridge fills the space in your smile caused by missing teeth. It prevents the surrounding teeth from moving or rotating, reducing your risk of gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

The team at Dr. Sameh Aknouk Dental Services PC offers several types of dental bridges, including:

Traditional dental bridge

A traditional dental bridge features one or several false teeth (pontics) held in place by two dental crowns. Your provider bonds the crowns to the teeth on either side of the gap, holding the bridge firmly in place.

Cantilever dental bridge

If you’re missing multiple teeth, your provider might recommend a cantilever bridge. A cantilever bridge is similar to a traditional dental bridge but features only one crown, instead of two. Your provider bonds the crown to one healthy tooth next to the gap in your smile.

Maryland dental bridge

A Maryland dental bridge features one or several false teeth (pontics) and a metal framework. Your provider bonds the metal framework to the back of the two teeth on either side of a gap. To get a Maryland dental bridge, you must have two healthy teeth on either side of a gap in your smile.

Getting a dental bridge typically takes two appointments spaced several weeks apart. Your provider conducts an oral exam at your initial consultation, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment.

Afterward, they take X-rays and digital impressions of your teeth. Your provider uses your impressions to create a tailor-made dental bridge in their on-site dental laboratory.

A week or two later, you return to the office to try out your dental bridge. Your provider carefully lines it up with the gap in your smile and bonds the crowns or metal framework to the teeth on either side of your gap. You leave the office with a fully-functioning tooth that’s capable of biting and chewing.

You take care of your dental bridge like you would your natural, permanent teeth. Brush and floss daily and visit Dr. Sameh Aknouk Dental Services PC every six months for a professional cleaning and exam.

If possible, try to avoid bad habits like nail-biting or chewing on ice cubes. These activities can cause your bridge to chip or crack.
