Denver Dental Bridges

Contact Midtown Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

Missing teeth can cause painful problems, such as an increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and difficulty eating, the longer you go without a dental restoration solution. Among the most effective answers for missing teeth are dental bridges, which help close the gap and maintain excellent oral and overall health.

At Midtown Dental, our experienced team of dental professionals are passionate about providing the most suitable solution for your needs. Contact us at 303-377-2345 to learn more about our restorative dental procedures, including dental bridges.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration that provides a long-term solution for missing teeth. A dental bridge contains one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, that attach to the neighboring teeth that remain. 

Typically, the natural teeth on either side of the gap receive crowns that will support the dental bridge. However, the method of securing the new teeth depends on the type of dental bridge you receive.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

If you have missing teeth and dental bridges are the right solution for you, the procedure can provide incredible benefits for your health and everyday life, including:

  • Restore your smile
  • Recover your ability to chew
  • Regain your regular speech
  • Prevent teeth misalignment

When there’s a gap in your teeth, the remaining teeth have a tendency to shift into the gap, which can cause significant issues with your bite. Missing teeth can also affect your social confidence due to the appearance of your smile and the effect on your speech.

Our dentists at Midtown Dental can work with you to restore your teeth and smile so you can have a better quality of life.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bridges?

Good candidates for dental bridges have one or more missing teeth, but the remaining teeth on either side, known as the abutment teeth, should be strong enough to support the false teeth. 

However, in cases where the dental patient’s abutment teeth aren’t stable enough, but they need to replace multiple missing teeth, an implant-supported dental bridge could be the best option. Instead of attaching the bridge to abutment teeth, a metal support rod will go into the patient’s gum and will provide a sturdy attachment point for the dental bridge.

Dental Bridges Aftercare and Recovery

After you receive the dental bridge, you might have a short recovery period of about two weeks. During recovery, you might experience soreness and sensitivity of your teeth.

The typical aftercare for dental bridges looks like the following:

  • Brush and floss your teeth every day
  • Use toothpaste for sensitive teeth
  • Avoid very hot or cold foods

A temporary bridge can last between five and 15 years depending on your oral care, while implant-supported dental bridges are permanent restorations.

This dentist is so good that I choose to go here despite being out of my insurance network. I had previously gone to another dentist in Cherry creek who kept performing expensive treatments that didn’t help. After my first visit at midtown dental, they resolved my issue. Their staff is incredibly kind, patient, and transparent.

We've been going to Midtown Dental for close to 10 years. Dr. T and his team are our favorites! Having two young girls who were not particularly excited about going to the dentist, they were made to feel incredibly comfortable and now actually look forward to going to the dentist!!! Thanks Midtown Dental!

I have been going to Midtown Dental for about 8 years. I always love the dental hygienists. My mom was a hygienist so I have been spoiled my whole life with a great hygienist (totally bias). I love the hygienists at Midtown. I had a great cleaning today. They use the ultrasonic water to get the plaque off which is super comfortable. They are thorough. This is a down-to-earth place which is super friendly and professional staff. Covid Protocols are in place, which made me feel comfortable. Insurance was billed and my whole experience was smooth.

The hygienists are always gentle and ensure you feel comfortable throughout the cleanings. Dr. T is absolutely fantastic. He is thorough, does a great job making himself available or any questions, and he has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend this dental office highly enough.
