Fixed Bridges

  • A fixed bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth. It is called a fixed bridge because it is not removable.
  • A bridge is a structure, supported by teeth on either side of a space.
    It spans the gap between teeth, just as a bridge spans a river.

Is the preparation of bridgework painful?

  • The procedure is not painful, because a local anesthetic is used during the preparation of the teeth, and the taking of the impression.
  • It is seldom necessary to take an analgesic for pain relief after the treatment.

Will there be any sensitivity after the bridges are placed in the mouth?

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold sometimes occurs after the bridge has been cemented, but this is usually temporary.

Will a fixed bridge look good?

  • Fixed bridges can be made to look natural and to match the adjoining natural teeth.
  • A bridge in the front of the mouth will restore and even improve the smile.

How successful are fixed bridges?

  • Fixed bridges have been used successfully to replace one or more missing teeth.
  • They can last for many years.
