Dental Bridges for Saskatoon Communities

Nowadays, thanks to contemporary advancements in dentistry, patients who are missing one, two, or several teeth have an array of options for remedying their smile.

One treatment that dentists may recommend is obtaining a dental bridge. This prosthetic is carefully created to fill the gap between your teeth while providing overall structural support. You’ll be able to get back to all your daily activities in no time.

At Hampton Village Dentistry, we offer dental bridges in Saskatoon. Reach out to our team to find out more.

Dental Bridges in Saskatoon

What to Know

A dental bridge is a type of restorative prosthetic provided to patients to reinforce the strength of their smile and improve its functionality. It can also help enhance your smile aesthetically as it fills in gaps that would otherwise be noticeable when you eat and talk.

Though there are four types of bridges you can acquire depending on your needs, the general structure of a bridge involves using a pontic (artificial tooth) to fill in the socket and two abutments (dental crowns) to keep it in place by attaching it onto neighboring teeth.

The different styles of bridges are:

  1.  Traditional – The most common form.
  2.  Cantilever – Very similar to traditional bridges, but only uses a single abutment.
  3.  Maryland – A porcelain framework is integrated into the structure.
  4.  Implant-Supported – The bridge rests upon dental implants for additional stability.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact your local dentist in Saskatoon.

What Bridges Can Fix?

In addition to replacing missing teeth, recipients of this treatment can experience a number of other benefits, such as:

  •  Restoring your ability to bite and chew
  • Stops your other teeth from moving
  • Enhances your speech
  • Increases your self-esteem

Bridges are simple structures to maintain daily. With the right upkeep, like brushing and flossing twice a day and attending regular dental visits, they can last for several years.

Your dentist in Saskatoon will ensure that the prosthetic is customized to meet your oral dimensions, therefore preventing any slippage, by taking impressions of your smile. It takes 2-3 weeks for the bridge to be designed at a lab. Once it’s placed, your dentist will check to ensure everything looks good.
