Exploring Dental Bridges: Your Path to a Confident smile

Dental bridges, the unsung heroes of restorative dentistry, are the answer to your tooth loss woes. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or several in a row, bridges seamlessly fill the gaps, giving you back your smile’s charm and function. At Dental Canvas, we’re dedicated to helping you regain your confidence and maintain excellent oral health.

How Do Bridges Work?
Imagine a bridge spanning a river, connecting two sides. Similarly, dental bridges consist of a “pontic” – the artificial tooth – supported by dental crowns on either side. These crowns are securely affixed to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants, forming a stable bridge
over the void left by the missing tooth.

Support from Teeth
In traditional bridges, adjacent healthy teeth are prepared by gently removing a small portion of their enamel. This creates room for the dental crowns to be placed over them, anchoring the bridge in place. While effective, this approach does involve some enamel reduction on otherwise healthy teeth.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges take the game a step further. Dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, serve as sturdy foundations for the bridge. These implants fuse with the bone, mimicking natural tooth roots. The bridge is then attached to the implants, offering unparalleled stability, comfort, and longevity. At Dental Canvas, we’re committed to preserving your oral health and enhancing your smile’s radiance. Our skilled professionals meticulously design and create bridges tailored to your unique needs. Whether you opt for traditional or implant-supported bridges, rest assured that your journey to a complete, confident smile is our top priority.
