At our dental practice in Castle Hill, NSW, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your oral health and self-confidence, and we are here to help you restore your smile with precision and care.

For any queries or to schedule your dental bridge consultation, please contact our friendly reception team by calling (02) 9659 1222. We’re here to address all your concerns comprehensively.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are custom-made dental appliances that bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Unlike dental crowns, which cover a single tooth or a dental implant, bridges span the space where teeth are absent and are anchored to the natural teeth or implants surrounding that gap.

The importance of replacing missing teeth cannot be overstated, as gaps in your smile can lead to a cascade of dental issues, including shifting teeth, jawbone loss, and changes in bite pressure.

When should you get dental bridges?

Our Castle Hill dentists typically recommend dental bridges to patients who want a fixed solution to replace missing teeth without the surgical requirements of dental implants.

Bridges offer both cosmetic and functional benefits, restoring not only the appearance of your smile, but also the ability to chew and speak properly. Neglecting to replace missing teeth can lead to more than cosmetic issues; it can also increase the risk of gum disease and cause the remaining teeth to bear extra strain.

Types of Dental Bridges Available in Castle Hill

We offer a variety of dental bridges at our Castle Hill clinic, including:

  • Traditional Bridges: The most common type, involving a false tooth held in place by crowns cemented onto adjacent teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: These are made of porcelain fused to metal or plastic teeth and gums, supported by a metal framework.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: For those looking for a highly stable option, these bridges are supported by dental implants instead of crowns or frameworks

Caring for Your Dental Bridge - Maintenance and Aftercare

Caring for Your Dental Bridge

Caring for your dental bridge is crucial for its longevity and the overall health of your oral cavity. Proper care ensures that your dental bridge remains functional and aesthetically pleasing for many years. Here are some key steps and tips to help you maintain your dental bridge:

  1. Brushing: Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, focusing on the area around the bridge and gum line. Use a soft-bristled brush.
  2. Mouthwash: Use antiseptic mouthwash daily to reduce plaque and reach difficult areas.
  3. Diet: Limit sugary/starchy foods and avoid hard or sticky items that can damage the bridge.
  4. Dental Visits: Regular check-ups and cleanings are essential to monitor bridge health.
  5. Avoid Tobacco: Tobacco use can harm the bridge and cause gum disease.
  6. Specialised Products: Use products made for bridge care, like specific flosses and brushes.
  7. Stay Informed: Keep up-to-date with bridge care practices and seek advice from your dentist.

Benefits of Dental Bridge Procedures

The advantages of dental bridges, especially when compared to other tooth replacement options, make them a popular and highly valued choice for many individuals with missing teeth, seeking to reclaim a complete and confident smile.

  1. Restored Functionality:
    • Dental bridges enable normal chewing and speaking, which can be impaired by missing teeth.
  2. Improved Aesthetics:
    • Bridges restore the appearance of a full set of teeth, enhancing the smile and facial structure.
  3. Prevents Shifting of Adjacent Teeth:
    • Filling the gap with a bridge prevents the neighbouring teeth from shifting, which could lead to bite issues or misalignment.
  4. Distributes Bite Forces Evenly:
    • Bridges help in evenly distributing the forces in your bite, thereby reducing stress on other teeth.
  5. No Surgery Required:
    • Unlike dental implants, bridges typically don’t require surgical intervention, making them a less invasive option.
  6. Quick Procedure:
    • The process of getting a dental bridge is relatively quick, often requiring only a few visits.
  7. Cost-Effective:
    • Generally, bridges are more affordable than dental implants, especially when multiple teeth are involved.
