Dental bridges offer a solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth in a row

Dental Bridges | Windham, NH

Replacing missing teeth may seem like a daunting task to Methuan, MA area patients, but it is actually a simple treatment that can be achieved in many different ways. Drs. Donna Kalil, Kenneth Kalil, and Jordan Thomas of Kalil Dental are available to help patients in the community restore their smile with dental restorations such as dental bridges.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a restoration that is fabricated from porcelain and used to replace one or more teeth in a row. The bridge “bridges the gap” between missing teeth, ensuring that the smile is restored for better functionality and appearance. The dentists at Kalil Dental find that dental bridges are a common solution for patients who are seeking something affordable yet permanent. Dental bridges are custom-made for patients and utilize the surrounding teeth for support. They are made with dental crowns on each side which are fused to one or more false teeth called pontics in the middle. 

Are dental bridges permanent?

Dental bridges are a much more permanent option for patients who want to avoid traditional partial dentures. Partial dentures require patients to remove and replace their appliance in their smile, while also caring for the appliance every night to keep it clean. With dental bridges, the restoration is placed in the smile and stays in place. Patients do need to make sure they clean around and beneath the bridge to keep food particles from becoming trapped, but this is minor care that patients are already doing when they take care of their teeth every day. Dental bridges are also a less expensive option when compared to dental implants, which cost more and may not be within reach for patients on a tight budget. 

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

Dental bridges are restorations that are:

• Natural-looking

• Strong and durable

• Long-lasting

• Easy to care for

• Affordable

• Custom-made
