Exhausted from removing partial dentures every night? Struggling with spaces between your teeth? Been told you’re not an implant candidate? Quit denying yourself the luxury of a full set of teeth. A dental bridge is all you need.
It is a little-known fact that dental bridges are a great tooth replacement option, especially for people who are seeking a long-lasting solution to multiple missing teeth. Bridges are perfect for people irritated with looking after poor fitted dentures but do not qualify as eligible candidates for an implant.
All in all, a bridge to lose the gap between your missing teeth could be the ideal solution for your problems.

Once you get a new bridge to replace your row of missing teeth, the next step is to ensure that they last long.
Here are some care tips you can choose to follow.
Brush your teeth twice every day: This is an essential practice that you need to adopt for your oral healthcare. Brushing your teeth twice daily can help in avoiding plaque buildup and keep your oral bacteria healthy.
Clean under the bridge: Dental bridges are fixed to your teeth very snugly and almost have no room for a regular floss to perform its function. This does not mean, however, that debris and food particles do not get stuck underneath. Ask your dentist to give recommendations for special tools that can help you regularly clean underneath the bridge.
Avoid hard and cold food items: Avoid extremely hard or cold food that can cause the ceramic on your pontic to crack and fracture.
Use a fluoride rinse: Use a fluoride rinse regularly after your bridge is installed. This will help in making your gumline stronger and prevent the buildup of plaque and unwanted oral bacteria.
On average, a traditional fixed bridge costs between $2000 and $5000. A Cantilever bridge can cost up to $2500, while a Maryland bonded bridge can cost $1750. The priciest option is an implant-supported bridge that can cost between $4000 to $16000.
