FaQ – Dental Bridges

How long do dental bridges last?

Dental bridges, with proper care and maintenance, can last 5 to 15 years or even longer. The longevity depends on the bridge’s material, the health of the anchoring teeth, and your oral hygiene practices. Regular dental visits are essential for ensuring the bridge and surrounding teeth remain healthy.

Can you eat normally with a dental bridge?

Yes, after an initial adjustment period, you can eat normally with a dental bridge. It’s advisable to start with soft foods and gradually reintroduce harder foods. Good oral hygiene, including careful cleaning around the bridge, is crucial for preventing any complications.

What is the difference between a dental bridge and a partial denture?

A dental bridge is a permanent fixture cemented to adjacent teeth or implants, providing a fixed solution. A partial denture, on the other hand, is removable and is typically used when more than one tooth is missing. It rests on the gums and is supported by the remaining teeth. Both have their specific indications, and your dentist can advise the best option for your dental needs.
