Dental Bridges

Missing teeth? Restore your smile with a permanent ​dental bridge ​to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth by a leading ​dental bridge specialist at our Brisbane​ and Toowoomba oral and maxillofacial clinics. ​Dental bridges​ do so much more than restore your smile and confidence — they’re also highly functional and make eating easier and more enjoyable, and help to minimise the likelihood of further complications arising.

What’s a dental bridge?

A ​dental bridge ​is used to replace missing teeth with false teeth and is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the missing teeth or dental implants and, for some patients, can be a suitable alternative to dentures. ​Dental bridges ​are usually either porcelain, metal or a combination of the two, depending on your situation and budget.

If you’re interested in a permanent and fixed solution to missing teeth, whether a single tooth, multiple or a full set of upper or lower teeth, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon and dental bridge specialist can help. Dr Andrew MacMillan is a respected oral surgeon experienced in dental implants (Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Neoss) an​d dental bridge solutions.

We offer several varieties of ​dental bridges ​at our ​Brisbane​ and Toowoomba clinics, including ​‘All on 4’ dental implants​ which replace the whole set of teeth. ​All on 4 implants cost​ more than other dental bridge solutions, however, as they replace a full set of upper or lower teeth with just four dental implants, they’re a popular solution for patients with severe dental issues or those who would otherwise require multiple dental bridges.

Benefits of dental bridges

Dental bridges​ implanted by a ​dental bridge specialist ​like Dr MacMillan in ​Brisbane ​and Toowoomba offer multiple benefits, such as:

  • Restoring your smile and feeling more confident.
  • Restoring your eating and speaking functionality.
  • Restoring and maintaining your natural facial and dental shape.
It’s important to understand that missing teeth are more than unsightly and can cause greater problems than a loss of confidence. Not treating missing teeth with dentures or a dental bridge ​can result in your remaining teeth gradually moving out of position, increase the likelihood of oral health complications and make eating — and meeting your dietary requirements — difficult.

If you’re ready to restore your smile, confidence and enjoy better overall oral, dental and general health, ​contact Dr MacMillan​ to find out more about the ​dental bridge ​solutions we offer in ​Brisbane​ and Toowoomba, ​All on 4 costs​ and more.
