How we design bridges to span the gaps in your smile

Bridges are “fixed” or permanent ways to replace natural teeth loss due to dental decay or other trauma. Unlike other prosthetics, like partial dentures, bridges are cemented onto existing teeth. Or, with implant-retained bridges, the prosthetic tooth is connected to an artificial “root” (implant) stabilized in the jaw. The quality dental bridges placed by our kind and talented dentist at Gentle Dentistry of Newnan PC, Dr. Ria C. Sahara, may be used to replace one tooth, a few teeth, or many teeth. 

Ideal candidates for bridges in west-central Georgia

Dental bridges are made with a standard and highly versatile dental treatment: crowns. Also known as a cap, the dental crown may be designed with porcelain, ceramic, gold, and metal alloys or a mix of porcelain-fused-to-metal. Crowns are also the last part of the implant process; the titanium or titanium alloy tooth “root” is placed in the jaw and eventually fuses to the surrounding jawbone as part of a natural process. The crown is then placed over the “root” and attached to the implant.

Most conventional dental bridges require at least two crowns to support the “pontic” or replacement tooth. The teeth that are nearest to the pontic are crowned. These “abutment” teeth must be filed down to make way for the crowns. Once crowns cover the abutments, they can properly “anchor” and support the pontic. After impressions of the prepared teeth are made, Dr. Sahara will fit you with a temporary bridge. Once the permanent bridge has been made, you’ll revisit Gentle Dentistry of Newnan PC. We remove the temporary and cement the bridge as one unit (the crowns are fused to the pontic) to the abutment teeth.

These bridges can last several years, decades, or even a lifetime as long as you care for them properly. We can show you how to keep the area underneath the bridge clean and free of food particles, bacteria, and other harmful substances that can threaten the health of the bridge and neighboring natural teeth. Call our office in Newnan, GA, today at (470) 686-6667. During your appointment, Dr. Sahara can walk you through different options to replace missing or failing teeth, including traditional fixed bridges and crowns, bridges, and dentures retained by dental implants.

Dental Bridges
A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
