A dental bridge is a false tooth which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth.

Questions on Dental Bridge

How is dental bridge done?
During your first consultation visit with your prosthodontist at our dental bridge clinic. A x-ray and treatment plan will be draw up on your missing gap options and the type of bridge suited and available to for your specific case.
 

For traditional bridges, the procedure is completed within 2 to 3 visits. With confirmation for dental bridge treatment, your bridge dentist reshapes natural teeth adjoining to the missing gap. A tooth impression is then taken along with chosen color, size and shape of your bridge. Temporary composite crowns are fitted over the prepared adjacent teeth.

The dental lab fabricates your permanent bridges based on your tooth impression. On delivery, your prosthodontist makes an appointment to remove the temporary crowns and the permanent bridge is sealed into place.

 
A re-check visit made be requested by your dentist to see if your new dental bridges is functioning properly or for any required adjustments.
How is implant-supported dental bridge done?

Dental implants are ideal teeth replacement solutions. For implant-supported bridges, this may replace several missing gaps or full arch missing teeth.

Before the dental bridges may be fitted, the dental implant posts will need to be first intalled. During your first visit, x-ray imaging and possible CT Scan are taken to check on your bone condition. Your dental implant post positioning is planned. If there is insufficient bone, your implantologist may recommend bonegrafts. You are also able to talk to your implant dentist about sedation services should you feel anxious or phobia on surgery.

During the day of implant placement, anesthesia is first adminstered. The implant posts are placed into your jaw bone. A healing cap are placed over the implant posts whilst your bone and gums are left to heal. During this osseointegration waiting period for the implant post to heal with the jaw bone, you are able to wear temporary dentures or prosthese.

After 2 months or more, a post implant x-ray is taken to check on the healing before the dental bridge over implant is installed over the implant posts. Your prosthodontist removes the healing cap and places in implant abutments. A tooth impression is taken and sent to our dental labs.

On return of the dental bridges, your bridge dentist screws or cements your new permament bridge over your implant posts.
