A dental bridge on natural teeth, also known as a fixed bridge or tooth-supported bridge, is a treatment option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Here's how this type of bridge works:

  • Initial Evaluation: The process begins with a consultation with your dentist, who will assess the health of your teeth and gums and discuss your treatment options for replacing the missing teeth.

  • Preparation of Teeth: If you decide to proceed with a dental bridge, the dentist will prepare the natural teeth adjacent to the space where the teeth are missing. This involves shaping or slightly reducing the size of these teeth so they can serve as support pillars for the bridge.

  • Impressions: Once the teeth are prepared, impressions of your mouth are taken. These impressions are used to fabricate a custom dental bridge that fits perfectly to the shape of your teeth and gums.

  • Fabrication of Dental Bridge: The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where the dental bridge is fabricated. This may take a few days, during which time you may wear a temporary bridge if necessary.

  • Placement of Dental Bridge: Once the dental bridge is ready, you return to the dental office for its placement. The dentist will check the fit and appearance of the bridge before cementing or permanently bonding it to the prepared natural teeth.

  • Final Adjustments: After placing the bridge, the dentist may make additional adjustments to ensure it fits comfortably and your bite is correct.

  • Care and Maintenance: It's important to properly care for your dental bridge with good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. Additionally, regular dental visits for check-ups and cleanings are recommended.

Dental bridges on natural teeth offer a fixed and permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring the function and aesthetics of the mouth. However, it's important to note that the natural teeth prepared for the bridge may require special care in the long term to maintain their health and avoid future problems.
