What is a Dental Bridge?
There are different type of bridges:
Traditional or conventional bridges: These involve placing a crown on the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth and having a false tooth or pontic in between.
Cantilever bridges: These involve placing a crown on only one side of the missing teeth.
Resin bonded bridges or Maryland bridges: These involve the use of metal or porcelain wings which are bonded to one or both teeth adjacent to the missing tooth and hold a false tooth in the space.
The importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
What is the dental bridge procedure like?
Once the permanent bridge is ready, you will need to return to clinic to have it bonded in place. The temporary bridge will be removed and the new fixed bridge will be bonded to the supporting teeth.
What does a fixed dental bridge treat?
When there are multiple teeth missing on one side, we are inclined to lean more on the other side for chewing. This can result in very uneven wear and tear on those otherwise healthy teeth. This can also lead to further damage, decay and potentially the risk of losing more teeth.

What are the advantages to getting a tooth bridge?
A tooth bridge can help to stop your remaining healthy teeth from shifting into the gap left behind. Quite often teeth move gradually into any available space. This can lead to misalignment, issues with bite, and also damage to the previously healthy teeth. This can, in turn, lead to decay and the potential for losing another tooth.
I have had a number of procedures completed at Foster Court Dental Clinic and I would highly recommend this practice.
The staff are friendly and helpful and were happy to check my PRSI entitlements for treatments.
The dentist was very clear on what procedures were needed and the treatments were completed hassle-free and very professionally.
