Our dentists commonly use fixed bridges with clients who have one or more adjacent teeth that are missing. At our clinic in Île-Perrot, we use state-of-the-art technology as well as the best materials available on the market to design stable and lasting dental bridges.
Besides affecting the appearance of the smile, missing teeth can threaten your oral and general health. That is why our team offers its clients solutions suited to their needs when they want to replace their teeth. These solutions include fixed bridges. The traditional fixed bridge is useful to replace a single tooth, even two neighbouring teeth. In contrast, the implant-supported fixed bridge is used to replace up to four adjacent teeth.
Dental bridges consist of two parts: a pontic and abutment teeth. Pontics are a central replacement tooth or teeth, installed between abutment teeth. Abutment teeth serve as dental crowns. In the case of a traditional bridge, crowns are attached to natural teeth that the dentist will have prepared to create a large enough gap. To that end, natural teeth need to be in top condition. With implant-supported bridges, crowns are attached to dental implants located on each end of the bridge. Dental implants replace the roots of natural teeth and serve as a solid base for replacement teeth.
How is a fixed bridge installed?
The design and installation of a fixed bridge require attention to detail from your dentist. Several steps are necessary from design to installation in the mouth to adjustments.
With the traditional bridge, the dentist first carries out an oral health exam to ensure your gums and abutment teeth are in good condition to receive the bridge. The dentist then removes a layer of enamel and of dentine to prepare the abutment teeth. Using imprints and precise measurements, the dentist makes the bridge and dental crowns. The crowns are finally cemented to the prepared teeth and last adjustments are made to make the bridge fit to the other teeth.
With an implant-supported fixed bridge, implants must be first installed during surgery. Once healing is completed and implants are fixed to the jaw, the bridge and crowns can be installed. They will have been made using the same process as for a traditional bridge.
Advantages of a traditional fixed bridge
The traditional bridge yields very aesthetic results. It can be worn discreetly because it blends well with natural teeth. Fixed bridges can last many years when well maintained. This tooth replacement option is more cost-effective in the short-term than the implant-supported bridge.
Advantages of a implant-supported bridge
Implant-supported bridges offer the best stability and chewing capacity. Also, achieved results are equally aesthetically pleasing. Dental implants can remain in place during a lifetime when properly maintained. The bridge and crowns will be replaced when worn out. Also, implants prevent bone resorption of the jaw, which is inevitable with traditional bridges.
