What is Dental Bridge ?

A dental bridge is a restorative dental appliance designed to replace one or more missing teeth by literally “bridging the gap” in your smile. This custom-made prosthetic device is carefully crafted to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
 
Components of a Dental Bridge
 
Abutments: These are the structures that support the dental bridge. Abutments can be natural teeth that are adjacent to the gap, which are prepared to hold the bridge securely. In cases where dental implants are used, the abutments refer to the small connector posts that are attached to the implants to support the bridge.
 
Pontics: These are the artificial teeth that fill the gap left by missing teeth. Pontics are designed to look and function like natural teeth, restoring the appearance and functionality of your smile.

Because dental bridges involve trimming or interfering with potentially healthy teeth adjacent to the gap we are replacing, contemporary times have seen a shift away from dental bridges and more towards dental implants.However, there are still certain situations where you should consider a bridge:

  • To replace a previous bridge that is faulty or broken
  • Where dental implants are contraindicated
  • Where a fast but permanent tooth replacement is needed
  • Where the gaps for the intended replacement are too narrow or small for dental implant placement

Types Of Dental Bridges

At Ashford Dental, we offer various types of dental bridges to cater to different patient needs. Each type has its advantages and considerations. Here are the common types of dental bridges in Singapore:

Dental Bridge Process

  • Restored Functionality: Dental bridges help restore the ability to chew and speak properly, which can be affected by missing teeth.
  • Improved Appearance: By filling in gaps, dental bridges enhance the appearance of your smile, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Maintained Facial Structure: Bridges help maintain the shape of your face by preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of position.
  • Even Distribution of Bite Force: They distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth, which helps in maintaining overall oral health.

  • Oral Hygiene Practices: Regular brushing and flossing are essential to keep your dental bridge clean and free from plaque buildup. Our dentists will guide you on the best oral hygiene practices to maintain optimal oral health.
  • Dietary Restrictions: While dental bridges are sturdy, it is advisable to avoid excessively hard or sticky foods that could potentially damage the bridge. We will provide you with a list of foods to avoid to ensure the longevity of your dental bridge.
  • Warning Signs: Pay attention to any signs of discomfort, unusual sensations, or changes around the dental bridge area. If you experience any issues, contact our dental clinic promptly for a check-up.

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings with your dentist are vital to monitor the condition of your dental bridge and overall oral health. Our dental team will schedule review appointments 2 weeks later, and subsequently every 6 months thereafter, to ensure that your dental bridge remains comfortable, functional, and long-lasting.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bridges In Singapore

Is getting dental bridges a good option?

A dental bridge is a great option for those in Singapore who are missing more than one consecutive tooth and for those who suffer from gum disease.

How long will a dental bridge last?

Typically, dental bridges in Singapore are expected to last for up to five to seven years. If users practice good oral hygiene and clean their bridges frequently, it may last beyond 10 years.

Can a dental bridge be done in one day?

Ashford Dental’s dentists can finish the dental bridge procedure within 45-90 minutes, but it will take more time for the permanent bridge to be fabricated.

How long does the healing process take after getting a dental bridge?

The healing process after getting a dental bridge is usually straightforward and should not take more than a few days. Any discomfort or sensitivity experienced during this time is typically temporary and should subside quickly. If you have any concerns, our dental team is here to support you.

Will there be any discomfort or pain during the procedure?

The dental bridge procedure is generally painless, as it is performed under local anaesthesia. However, patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which is usually temporary. Our skilled dentists take every measure to ensure a comfortable treatment experience.

How long can a patient expect the dental bridge to last with proper care?

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, patients can expect their dental bridge to last for many years. However, individual factors and oral hygiene practices can influence the longevity of the bridge. Our dentists will guide you on how to maintain your dental bridge for optimal results.

Which is better, a bridge or an implant?

Durability: Dental implants, when properly cared for, can last a lifetime, offering a more permanent solution compared to dental bridges, which may require replacement after several years. Bone Health Preservation: Dental implants help prevent bone loss in the jaw, providing an additional health benefit.

Are dental bridges safe?

When properly maintained, a dental bridge can last for decades. To prevent damage, avoid chewing gum and consuming hard foods like nuts, ice, and hard candies. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene and having regular dental check-ups will help keep your dental bridge comfortable, clean, and durable.

Do dental bridges appear natural?

One of the key advantages of a dental bridge is its ability to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Is it safe to sleep with a dental bridge?

It is recommended that patients remove their dental bridges before going to bed. This practice allows the muscles to relax and provides an opportunity to clean the bridge properly.

Is it possible to eat with a dental bridge?

Yes, you can eat normally with a dental bridge. While it allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods, it may take some time to get used to it.

Can dental bridges crack?

Yes, dental bridges can crack. A strong enough blow can cause a dental bridge to crack, break, loosen, or even become completely dislodged. Lesser impacts can also cause damage if they occur frequently, and continuous or regular direct pressure can result in the bridge becoming loose.

Is it safe to chew gum with a dental bridge?

It’s best to avoid chewing gum if you have a dental bridge. Gum can be sticky and difficult to remove, potentially causing issues whether your bridge is fixed or removable. To prevent any complications, it’s advisable to avoid chewing gum entirely.

Is it safe to brush your teeth if you have a dental bridge?

Yes, it is essential to brush your teeth, including your dental bridge, twice daily. Use a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging your gums and bridge. Avoid abrasive toothpaste with ingredients like peroxide or baking soda. Both electric and manual toothbrushes are effective for maintaining your dental bridge.
