Dental Bridge FAQs
What is the difference between a dental bridge and an implant?
Dental bridges rely on the support of surrounding teeth to “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the gums and begin fusing with the jawbone, and once healed, an artificial tooth is attached to the top. Dental bridges and implants are made of durable, long-lasting materials and both are considered excellent solutions for tooth loss.
Is a dental bridge permanent?
Dental bridges are a permanent way to replace one or more missing teeth. The best way to ensure that your dental bridge lasts as long as possible is to maintain a thorough oral care routine and visit the dentist twice a year for cleanings and exams. There are no diet restrictions with dental bridges; a good rule of thumb is to not eat anything you wouldn’t eat with natural teeth. Dental bridges can last 10-15 years and sometimes longer with proper care.
How much does a dental bridge cost?
Because dental bridges are considered restorative dental treatments, most insurance plans will cover some if not all of the cost of a dental bridge. We also accept CareCredit® or Lending Club for patients who would like to utilize their monthly repayment plans. Our team at Leesburg Family Dental never wants to see patients avoid the dental work they need due to cost concerns.
