Dental bridges ‘bridge the gap’ left by a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.

The teeth either side of the gap are the anchors for the bridge, and a prosthetic tooth fills the space.

What is the dental procedure for bridges in Glasgow?

During your first visit, your dentist will prepare the abutment teeth, which involves removing some of the enamel on the neighbouring teeth to make room for the crowns.

You will have an impression taken of your mouth which will be used to create the bridge, prosthetic tooth and the crowns at a dental lab. You will wear a temporary removable bridge in the to protect the exposed anchor teeth.

At your second appointment, you will be fitted for your permanent bridge. You may require follow-up visits to check the fit and ensure it is secure and comfortable.

Is the procedure painful?

Your dentist will use anaesthesia for the procedure, but in the days following you may experience some tooth and jaw discomfort. This can be alleviated with over-the-counter painkillers.

How do I clean my dental bridge?

Clean and care for your dental bridge just like your natural teeth by brushing and using floss sticks. Use an oral irrigation device or a denture brush to get under the prosthetic tooth to clean away trapped food debris. Using an antiseptic mouthwash can help eradicate germs in the tissues surrounding the bridge.

How long does a dental bridge last?

A dental bridge in Glasgow can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years.

If you are missing a tooth, dental bridges in Glasgow may be a safe and affordable replacement option. Give us a call on 0141 632 1378 to book an appointment for an evaluation. At that time your dentist can advise you on whether your remaining teeth are healthy enough to support a dental bridge.

Had my tooth implant over 3 years ago here. Never had any issues with it. It’s not a visible tooth (far right at the very back) so not a big issue for cosmetic reasons but I eat more on that…
