Dental Bridge Jeddah
Our Dental Clinic in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia offers a full range of dental services including dental implants, root canal treatment, and cosmetic dentistry, as well as general dentistry, orthodontics, oral surgery, and preventive care. Missing teeth not only affect the look of your smile but also your health. Restoring your teeth with bridges helps preserve natural teeth, healthy gums, and a beautiful smile.
Dental bridge treatment is recommended if you are missing one tooth or a few in a row. This procedure is one of the most advanced, natural-looking ways to fill the space from a missing tooth, and can safely prevent your other teeth from shifting.
At our dental clinics in Riyadh, Jeddah we make sure that the dental bridge is fabricated from the best materials to achieve a natural look, while still being comfortable and functional.
Dental bridges are fixed appliances, which means they are not removable by the patient once they are cemented in place. Our doctors will advise you on which type of dental bridge is suitable for your individual situation. We use the most advanced technologies and methods to provide long-term solutions for our patients.
Dental Bridge Process
Dental bridges are a convenient option when replacing one or more missing teeth. They consist of a pontic (false tooth) that is attached to two crowns, which function as abutments (anchors). The bridge is cemented in place on the two teeth adjacent to the gap, which supports the false tooth.
The process for getting a dental bridge is very similar to getting a crown.
Preparing the teeth
The first step in the process is to prepare the teeth that will hold the bridge. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth are shaved down with a drill and then an impression is taken. This impression is sent to a lab where your permanent bridges will be made.
Creating a temporary bridge
While you wait for your permanent bridges, your dentist will create a temporary bridge so that you can leave the office with a full set of teeth. The temporary bridge will be removed when you return for your second appointment.
Receiving and fitting the permanent bridge
When you come back for your second appointment, your dentist will remove the temporary bridge, check to see if your gums have healed properly, and fit you with your new permanent bridge. If it fits well and there aren’t any major issues, then it will be permanently cemented into place and you’ll be all done!
