Dental bridges are prosthetic devices used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth called pontics, which are anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges come in various types, such as traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges. To determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental bridges, several factors need to be considered.
Factors Influencing Candidacy of Dental Bridges
1. Oral Health
One of the primary factors that determine your candidacy for dental bridges is your overall oral health. Your gums and remaining teeth should be in good condition. If you have gum disease or extensive tooth decay, these issues must be addressed before getting a dental bridge.
2. Tooth Loss Location
The location of your missing teeth plays a crucial role in candidacy. Dental bridges are more suitable for replacing one or two adjacent missing teeth. If you have multiple missing teeth in different areas of your mouth, alternative options like partial dentures or dental implants might be recommended.
3. Tooth Strength
The teeth adjacent to the gap left by missing teeth should be strong and healthy. They will serve as anchors for the dental bridge. If these teeth are weak or compromised, they may not be able to support the bridge.
4. Bone Density
Adequate bone density in the jaw is necessary to support dental implants if they are used to anchor the bridge. If your bone density is insufficient, you may require bone grafting before the bridge placement.
5. Overall Health
Your overall health is a critical consideration. Certain medical conditions or medications may affect your candidacy for dental bridges. Your dentist will review your medical history to ensure that dental bridge treatment is safe for you.
