Replace Missing Teeth & Restore Confidence

Tooth loss can happen for many reasons. Accidents, injuries due to sports, or even congenital abnormalities. Whatever the reason, it's important to address tooth loss to prevent further dental issues and to restore self-esteem.

A custom-made dental bridge from Big Bay Point Dentistry can be an ideal way to replace missing teeth and restore your ability to chew, speak and smile confidently once more. 

Don't let missing teeth hold you back. Take the first step towards a healthier smile that you love to show by contacting Big Bay Point Dentistry to schedule a consultation.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a natural-looking restoration that 'bridges' a gap in your mouth caused by missing teeth. The bridge, which is made up of one or more artificial teeth, is attached to the teeth on either side of the gap to fill the space.

A dental bridge keeps your other teeth from shifting positions to fill the space, which can lead to more serious dental issues like gum disease. Additionally, a dental bridge can improve your ability to chew and speak properly, as well as enhance the appearance of your smile.

Types of Dental Bridges

There is a variety of bridge styles, allowing your dentist to choose a bridge that meets your unique oral health needs.

  • Traditional Bridges

    Traditional dental bridges consist of a false tooth (or teeth), known as a pontic, which is held in place by dental crowns attached to the adjacent, natural teeth on either side of the gap.

  • Cantilever Bridges

    Cantilever bridges are supported by only one adjacent tooth or implant. This design allows for the restoration of a missing tooth without compromising the integrity of neighbouring, healthy teeth.

  • Maryland Bridges

    Maryland bridges do not require the use of dental crowns to anchor the bridge in place. Instead, they rely on a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of adjacent teeth for support. Maryland bridges can be a more conservative option that preserves the natural structure of the neighboring teeth.

  • Implant-Supported Bridges

    Implant-supported bridges are anchored in place by dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. This can provide a more stable and durable solution for patients with multiple missing teeth.
