Bridge The Gap and learn To Smile Again
Looking for a dental bridge in Glasgow? Then come along to Bishopbriggs Dental Care

A bridge is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth. A bridge is a fixed restoration which uses the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the restoration. The adjacent teeth are referred to as abutment teeth. The bridge has a crown on each of the abutment teeth and attached to the crowns is a pontic which is the false tooth replacing the missing the tooth and this closing the gap.

A bridge is a permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth.  It is both aesthetic and functional

Frequently asked questions

Will the dentist use anaesthetic?

In most cases it isn’t necessary to have an anaesthetic for a Maryland bridge. It is usually necessary for a conventional bridge, unless the tooth or teeth being used for the retainers have already had root canal treatment. Your dentist will let you know before work begins whether you need anaesthetic and, if you do, will anaesthetise the teeth before working on them so that you don’t feel anything.

What are the advantages of a bridge?

  • They replace missing teeth thus restoring aesthetics and function
  • The treatment only requires two appointments (sometimes onr or two more), 2 weeks apart
  • They have a good life span 10-15 years

How long does a bridge last?

If you clean your bridge well and attend for regular check and hygiene sessions, we normally say it will last up to 10-15 years
