Dental bridges can last for decades, but eventually they need repairing or replacing. A dental bridge is a fixed appliance that is placed in the mouth when one or more teeth are missing. Usually, the pontic (or false) teeth are anchored to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap, which are called the abutment teeth. You might need dental bridge repair because your bridge has broken, or your dentist identified a problem during a routine checkup.

At What Time Do They Need Fixing?

Dental bridges can last up to thirty-five years. Since abutment teeth are usually covered and signs of decay are not always visible, sensitivity around the gum or tooth could be an indication that the bridge needs to be repaired.

If pieces of porcelain come out, there is a crack in your tooth, you feel pain, or it becomes sensitive when brushing or chewing, then you should visit your dentist so that it can be fixed.

Dental Bridge Repair

Treatment to repair a dental bridge depends on the cause of the failure. If the issue is with an abutment tooth, the dentist must remove the bridge. Fixed bridges are typically cemented to the abutment teeth, so this often requires breaking the original bridge. Once the supporting teeth have been treated, and if they're still healthy, a replacement bridge can be made. If the dentist can't restore the abutment teeth, they can be replaced with implants that support a new bridge. The abutment teeth and the missing teeth can also be replaced with implants, which are placed surgically into the jaw bone.

If the porcelain coating on the bridge is chipped or fractured, but the bridge is otherwise sound, it may be possible for the dentist to repair the coating. Dentists can sometimes repair a fractured pontic as well.
