Dental Bridges: An Alternative to Dentures

Dental bridges are an affordable and comfortable alternative to dentures. If you are just missing a few teeth, a dental bridge is used to fill in the missing gap. Dental bridges affix to healthy teeth and use a pontic to fill the space. Where complete or partial dentures require a period of adjustment and specialized cleaning, bridges are comfortable and little maintenance with good dental hygiene habits.

How the Process Works

When Dr. Rosenfeld identifies you as an ideal candidate for dental bridges, there are a few things that go into the process:

  • During the first visit, your abutment teeth are shaped for the bridge. Eventually, a crown will be fitted to these teeth to support the pontic.
  • Impressions are made of the abutment teeth so that the crown fits perfectly.
  • Dr. Rosenfeld will fit a temporary bridge and crowns while your final bridge and pontics are made.

During the second visit, your permanent bridge will be custom fitted. A unique dental cement is used that bonds your bridge and pontic to the abutment teeth. After the procedure, a return visit may be necessary to make sure that everything is fitted perfectly.

After the Procedure

Dental bridges are ideal for those that don’t want the maintenance that goes along with dentures and are an affordable solution to more costly dental implants. You will notice that your bridges:

  • Let you enjoy the foods that you like.
  • Match your existing teeth and make it easier to chew.
  • Can be maintained with good dental hygiene.

For adequate care, it is recommended that you brush, floss, and rinse twice per day. Additionally, a device known as a waterpik can help remove food and plaque from those hard-to-reach places around your bridge. Patients get good results from bridges. With good hygiene practices, bridges last about 10 to 15 years and let you enjoy a functional smile. If you have questions about dental bridges, feel free to contact Dr. Rosenfeld’s clinic at 858-755-1189 to schedule an appointment.

"Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff are absolutely AMAZING.  I have a fear of dentists and dentistry, but Dr. Rosenfeld and his outstanding team went the extra mile to make sure that I felt comfortable, reassured me that they would do anything and everything to take great care of me, and never made me feel anything but a very valued patient.  I never knew that an office would go so far to help me get through some challenging (at least for me) dental procedures.  Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for this office.  If only all businesses could provide the same level of customer service..  Oh, did I forget to mention that their work is top notch.  Worth every penny!"

"Seriously the best dentist our family has ever had. Dr Rosenfeld is great (for me) for the regular cleanings) and wonderful for my husband who has very problematic teeth and gums. Dr. Rosenfeld figured out the best way to help my husband minimize future problems and keep his mouth healthy."

"Dr. Rosenfeld is the best! I’ve been going to him for 10+ years now and he’s been nothing but caring and an excellent dentist to me. He really makes a point to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole appointment. He even gave me lip balm during working on my cavity to make sure I was as comfortable as possible! When I come in, I feel nervous and dreadful but Dr. Rosenfeld somehow always has a way of leaving me with a smile when we are done. Not that i will hope for another cavity though, of course."

"As good as it gets is correct!  Dr. Rosenfeld and his team are no-ka-oi!  He is a caring and kind professional with a bit o bend toward perfectionism.  The latter being a good thing when it comes to one's teeth.  At 58 he filled my first EVER cavity.  I was a bit nervous not having had that procedure ever before.  Dr. Rosenfeld took the time to make sure the area was numb to minimize my discomfort.  We agreed I probably needed a little more so he administered two more doses.  No discomfort whatsoever.  Toward the end of last year, I needed my first ever cap to repair a fissure in one of my molars.  This is where the perfectionism came into play - Dr. Rosenfeld made sure the cap exactly matched the color of my teeth. Dr. Rosenfeld is a marvelous practitioner!  I've recommended four friends to him and they all love him and his incredible team."
