Dental Bridge with Hewett’s Brighouse

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth or bridge gaps between your own healthy teeth. They consist of one or more crowns held together and are fixed to the adjacent supporting teeth.
Gaps in your teeth don’t just look unappealing, they can also cause a lot of damage to the surrounding teeth, putting more pressure on them and sometimes straining the jaw. A dental bridge is used to solve this problem, usually by fixing a false tooth in the gap and using the natural teeth to anchor it, holding it in place. There are lots of different types of bridge, made from various materials; a popular option is the Maryland Bridge.

You may have some questions and we’ve answered the most common ones below

What is a maryland bridge?

This kind of bridge is made from a specially formulated, highly durable resin, and held in place with metal wings that are fixed to the anchoring teeth. They are generally more suitable for patients with small gaps at the front of their mouth, and not for spaces of more than one tooth.

How will I know if I am suitable for a bridge?

You can arrange a consultation to discuss your options of a bridge with one of our experienced dentists.

A dental x-ray is normally required to assess the health of the teeth either side of the space that you want replaced as the bridge will have to be held on by one or both of the teeth.

Our dentists will fully advise you on the best way to look after your new dental bridge and ensure the underneath of the bridge is kept clean. Particular attention must be paid to oral hygiene before and after fitting your dental bridge.

We do have alternative solutions to replace missing teeth such as dental implants and dentures if you are not a suitable candidate for a bridge or if this is not the option for you. Call our team now to discuss dental bridges, Implants or missing teeth – Huddersfield 01484714717
