What are dental bridges?
If one or a few of your teeth are missing, it's not just a cosmetic issue — it can cause other teeth to shift. Missing teeth may result in unnecessary tension when you bite, increased pain during chewing, or even difficulty speaking. A bridge restores the appearance and health of your mouth by covering spaces using a false tooth supported by either crowns, dental implants, or both. At 286 Madison Dental in New York, NY, our team offers custom-made bridges with high-quality materials that will help to give you back your beautiful smile. If you have one or more teeth missing from your smile, please schedule a consultation with us to learn about your restoration options with dental bridges.
Who is a good candidate for dental bridges?
Missing teeth are not just a cosmetic issue — spaces between the teeth can heavily impact your oral health. Your mouth is carefully balanced, and a missing tooth can affect how well you can use it. With time, a missing tooth may shift teeth, creating bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite) and gum or jawbone atrophy. To place a dental bridge, the surrounding teeth must be healthy enough to support the restoration, with sufficient jawbone density and gums. Our team will assess your gums and jaw during your consultation to help you choose the best type of bridge (traditional, cantilever, resin bonded, or Maryland bonded) and material (ceramic, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and metal).

What to expect during dental bridge placement
After your teeth are prepped, our NYC team will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so we can create your bridge. If needed, we can use a temporary bridge or restoration while your custom one is being made. Once your restoration is ready, we'll numb the areas of your mouth that need it with local anesthesia. Other anesthesia or sedation methods may be used for fears, anxieties, or trouble with a gag reflex to help keep you calm during the placement. Your custom bridge will either be glued in its position or connected to implants based on the support you and our team selected during your consultation. Our team will carefully adjust the position of the bridge, so it feels right and remains in place.
What is follow-up like following dental bridge placement?
Once your bridge is in place, you should see an improvement in the appearance and function of your teeth. You may need a second visit at 286 Madison Dental to adjust your bridge's fit if it feels uncomfortable in the first few weeks after placement. Our team or an assistant on our team will teach you how to care for your restoration, including the best way to keep it clean and if you need to avoid any foods. Keeping your bridge and mouth clean is crucial since decay can still develop under the bridge. Your custom bridge can stay in place with proper care for many years. You should continue to schedule appointments at our office in New York, NY for your annual dental exams and cleaning twice a year. During your exams, our team can assess the wear and health of your custom bridge to decide if it should be replaced or repaired.
