Dental Bridges in Natick

Dental Exam photo

Missing one or more teeth is common for many people.

The ADA reports that on average adult patients may have three or more missing teeth. Fortunately, there are a number of solutions to replace missing teeth, including dental bridges.

A dental bridge provides a functional and aesthetic replacement for the patient's natural teeth. A dental bridge has two primary components: the abutments (or supports) created by placing a crown on a natural tooth or an implant on either side of the missing tooth and the synthetic tooth that replaces the missing tooth.

For patients missing three or more adjacent teeth, one or more implants may provide the abutments for the bridge and be used as an alternative to traditional partial dentures. This restoration typically requires two implants to support the porcelain bridge.

Types of Dental Bridges

Traditional Bridge Model

Traditional Dental Bridges

This is the most common type of dental bridge. The existing teeth are crowned with one or more pontics between and held in place by the crowned abutments. The crowns are cemented onto the teeth adjacent to the missing teeth to create a support structure or “bridge” for the missing teeth.
Implant Supported Bridge Model

Implant Supported Bridges

Instead of using existing teeth to support a bridge, a dental implant may be substituted to support one or both sides of a dental bridge. This is a popular option that can provide a very secure restoration. This solution is particularly effective when there are several adjacent missing teeth.
