27 Cambridge Street, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP20 1RP

A bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth that can be anchored to the teeth on either side of it.

This “bridges” the gap created by a missing tooth. A gap in your smile can cause problems with your bite, chewing, and speaking. The gap also provides an ideal environment for bacteria to grow and infect your teeth and gums.

How many dental visits does it take to get a bridge?

You usually need two visits to complete bridgework. During the first visit, your dentist measures your mouth, prepares the anchor teeth and sends these off to the dental lab to make the prosthetic tooth. You will then be provided with a temporary bridge to wear.

On your second visit, your dentist will fit your permanent bridge by attaching crowns, or wings of the bridge, to the anchor teeth and then attaching and cementing the prosthetic tooth in place.

Do I need any special toothpaste or toothbrush to care for the bridge?

You care for the bridge the same way you do for natural teeth, brushing and flossing twice a day. You don’t need a special brush or toothpaste. Your dentist or hygienist can show you how best to floss around the bridge.

How long do bridges last?

Bridges last up to 15 years, sometimes longer, depending on how well you care for them.
