Custom made for you
Custom made bridges have been used for decades to fill gaps left by one or more missing teeth. These gaps can cause many problems including an improper “bite” and creating a breeding ground for bacteria that causes gum disease and tooth loss.
Bridges can be permanently attached to one or more teeth (or implants) surrounding the space. Sometimes, when a gap needs to be filled quickly we create a temporary bridge which can also serve to help us find the best shape for your final bridge.
There are many different types of bridges, including our CEREC system which allows us to create a new bridge in just one visit.
As always, we will help you choose the best solution for you, and your unique circumstances, that is long lasting and the least intrusive.

HOW DO YOU FIT A BRIDGE?
When you come to Causeway Dental for a bridge fitting we will first take impressions of your teeth and do our best to match the shade of your bridge to your natural teeth. We will then use these impressions to create your custom made bridge. If you are being fitted with a traditional bridge you will need a follow up appointment to have your bridge permanently fitted.
WILL THE FITTING HURT?
Your dentist is highly trained and will do their very best to make the process as pain free as possible. That said, there is a chance you may experience a small amount of sensitivity for a few days but it will most likely go away very quickly.
ARE THERE BENEFITS OF BRIDGES V. DENTURES?
Yes, one of which is that bridges look and act more like natural teeth and are permanently fixed in your mouth, which makes it much easier to eat foods like fresh vegetables, fruit and crusty bread. They are also more comfortable, easier to clean, take up less space in your mouth, and are less likely to affect your speech.
Dentures, on the other hand, need to be removed daily to allow the gums and palate to ‘breathe’ to reduce the chances of disease and further tooth loss.
Advice for Aftercare
If you’ve been fitted with a temporary bridge here are a few things you should keep in mind before your new bridge is permanently in place:
Your temporary bridge should be comfortable, but you may need to eat softer foods and change your oral hygiene habits to make sure it stays in place between appointments.
Avoid chewing gum and eating sticky or hard foods.
Brush and floss carefully, and pull the floss out from the side so you won’t dislodge the temporary bridge.
It’s vital that your temporary bridge stays in place until your final bridge is ready to make sure it fits tightly in place. If it should come out before then please contact Causeway Dental so we can replace it immediately.
We will use local anaesthetic during the procedure and it will last for 3 -4 hours. We advise avoiding chewing food or consuming hot drinks until the numbness wears off so you don’t damage your cheeks, tongue or lips.
Note: Once the numbness wears off you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal and will normally go away once the final restoration is fitted.
