A message from Mirage Dental Clinic.

Missing teeth can disrupt your smile and compromise chewing and speaking. If you have one to four consecutive missing teeth, a dental bridge might be the right solution for you. Bridges provide a balance of comfort, better than removable partial dentures, and affordability, often more accessible than implants, making them a practical option. Consult with our team to discover a tailored option that suits your lifestyle, financial plan, and aesthetic goals.

Steps and care

Every step outlined, guaranteeing the enduring strength and health of your bridge.

Before having a bridge
Keep up with oral hygiene and share any dental concerns or allergies with us.
Between sessions
For temporary bridges, eat soft foods and maintain careful oral hygiene to protect your teeth and the temporary fixture.
After bridge placement
Resume normal activities right after placement. Some sensitivity or gum tenderness is expected but should ease swiftly. Over-the-counter medication can help with any discomfort.
Bridge maintenance
Brush twice a day, floss daily, especially under the pontic, and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash. If you grind your teeth, a mouthguard might be beneficial. Regular dental visits are crucial for upkeep.
Things to avoid
With both temporary and permanent bridges, avoid hard, sticky foods like ice, hard nuts, popcorn kernels, and chewy candies to protect your bridge from damage or dislodgment.

Frequently asked.

Dental bridges typically last between five to fifteen years, with potential to extend beyond with diligent care. Though referred to as "permanent" for their fixed nature, they will require replacement due to wear or damage over time.

Implants typically outlast bridges and help maintain bone integrity, minimizing future bone loss. Yet, individual oral health conditions, objectives, and preferences play a crucial role in deciding. Consult with your dentist for a tailored recommendation.

Dental bridges are typically not recommended for individuals under 17 or 18, with exceptions based on specific needs

Usually, a bridge can replace between one and three teeth side by side. Replacing four teeth might be possible, but it requires strong, healthy teeth next to the gap to support the bridge effectively.

It's best to replace missing teeth promptly to avoid shifting of adjacent teeth. If an extraction is necessary first, a healing period of a few months is needed before fitting a bridge, allowing gums and bone to recover properly.

No, the process is pain-free thanks to local anesthesia that numbs the area.

Yes, after a brief adjustment period, a bridge will feel similar to your own teeth, becoming a natural part of your mouth.

Yes, if a bridge loosens, it's typically straightforward to remove and reattach. But, if removal is necessary for reasons like treating decay or gum disease, the bridge might break, necessitating a new one.
