Dental Bridges in Epping

Do you have missing teeth or outdated dental restorations? At Epping Family Dental, we offer custom dental bridges to restore your smile to a functional, attractive state.

What Are Dental Bridges?

This treatment is a multi-tooth restoration that allows us to replace one to two teeth at a time. The teeth on either side of the open space are covered with a crown, suspending another crown (called a pontic) between them to replace the missing tooth.

This can be an excellent option for someone with a missing tooth who may not have enough bone to support a dental implant. It may also be ideal for replacing older dental work, as the average lifespan of these restorations is about 10 years.

Regular Care

These restorations need more attention than natural teeth, as food or bacteria can collect around the edges or between the pontic and your gums. A floss threader, proxy-brush or water flosser is effective and should be used daily. Be mindful of your sugar intake, as these hard-to-clean areas can be more susceptible to tooth decay. Be sure to clean around the supporting teeth, to prevent new areas of decay or gum disease from forming.

Should I Get a Dental Bridge?

With the option of dental implants, this treatment isn’t as popular as it once was. However, this approach is still appropriate in some situations. During your dental exam, we’ll evaluate your teeth to discuss the advantages of bridges, implants or other tooth replacement options. We’ll work with you to come up with the best treatment for your smile.
