Dental BridgesAn Overview

Dental bridges are one of the treatment options we offer for the replacement of missing teeth. Dr. Roham Rafat is a trained specialist in periodontics and perio-prosthodontics. We are one of the most qualified dentists in the Hunt Valley area for advanced restorative dental procedures.

In simple terms, a dental bridge is a series of artificial teeth. A dental bridge may be used to replace one or more missing teeth and can either be removable or fixed.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Removable Dental Bridge – Generally, a removable dental bridge is only suitable as a short term solution. Removable bridges are generally less expensive than fixed bridges, however they are also less stable. A removable bridge can help to maintain tooth position while a patient is preparing to have a fixed dental bridge or dental implant.
  • Fixed Dental Bridge – A fixed dental bridge is more secure and stable than a removable dental bridge. A fixed dental bridge can be held in place by either teeth or dental implants.

Dental Bridge vs. Dental Implant

If you have multiple missing teeth, you are probably comparing options of replacing the teeth with either dental implants or a dental bridge. There are advantages to each type of treatment. In general, Dr. Rafat supports a dental implant option to restore the most natural function and health to the mouth. Some patients may not be a candidate for dental implants because of their bone structure or the location of the missing teeth. In those cases, a dental bridge may be the best option. Either way, our dentists will help you make the best decision.
