Dental bridges

Bridge the Gap

What is a Dental Bridge?

Like crowns, bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants to provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. An effective alternative to dentures, they are cemented to the natural teeth on either side of the empty space to be filled. Much of the process of having a bridge fitted is similar to that of a crown. The teeth are prepared and then crowned to serve as anchors for the bridge.

What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?

A bridge can prevent bone loss, gum disease or decay caused by the presence of food debris in the gap and relieve pressure on the teeth either side of the gap. It will also improve your smile and your appearance.

Pain-free, fear-free Bridges for Nervous Patients

At the Parkway we take the concerns of nervous patients – and those who suffer from fear of the dentist –extremely seriously. A bridge maybe a straightforward form of dental treatment, but the anxiety which it can provoke in many patients is very real. We offer nervous and phobic patients the option of Local Anaesthesia, Sedation dentistry or General Anaesthetic for all dental procedures, depending on suitability. It is all part of the gentle, considerate approach which The Parkway is known for.
