Dental Bridges in Isle of Man

Available at all of our practices, we provide bridges for our private patients, and in some cases bridge reconstructions are provided by the NHS when it is deemed clinically necessary to do so.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Also commonly known as fixed partial dentures are used to help fill gaps due to tooth loss between existing teeth. They can be made from materials such as, gold, alloy, or porcelain. Removable bridges can be taken out to be cleaned, unremovable ones need to be removed by your dentist. An unremovable bridge and a removable bridge both rely on surrounding teeth for support, whereas an implant bridge is attached and supported by the jaw under the gum tissue.

When are Dental Bridges Needed?

Bridges are recommended when there are one or more teeth missing that affect:

  • Your smile and appearance.
  • Your bite, as a result of adjacent teeth leaning into the space and altering the way the upper and lower teeth bite together.
  • Your speech.
  • The shape of your face.
  • The rates of gum disease and tooth decay as a result of food accumulated in the gap.

Do Missing Teeth Need to be Replaced?

Yes, missing teeth must be replaced for many reasons:

  • To improve your appearance.
  • To reduce the strain on the teeth at either side of the missing tooth.
  • To prevent the neighbouring teeth from leaning into the resulting gap and altering the bite.
  • To prevent gum disease and tooth decay due to accumulation of food in the gap.
