No matter what type of dental bridge your dentist may recommend for you, you're sure to enjoy a great set of results. Here’s why.


When we’ve written in the past on the subject of dental bridges, we’ve concentrated, in the main, on the three primary types of bridge - Traditional, Maryland and Cantilever.

That said, there’s another type of bridge that is gaining in popularity these days, and it's known as an implant-supported bridge.

It’s yet another arrow in your dentist’s quiver when it comes to replacing missing teeth. And as the name suggests, this type of bridge is supported by dental implants – instead of by crowns or frameworks.

And while individual cases may vary, the norm is for one implant to be used for every tooth that’s missing. And in cases where it's not possible to use one implant per missing tooth, the bridge can be comprised of a pontic that’s suspended in place between two implant-supported crowns.

A big plus point of this type of bridge is that they’re very, very stable, as they're held snugly in place by implants, which are fixed firmly into the jawbone.

We should point out, however, that you'll need to visit the surgery twice – firstly to put the implants in place and secondly to put the bridge in place. It takes around five months before you’ve got your finished bridge in place.

You don’t have to worry about choosing a bridge type – your dentist will make the decision for you, based on the specific circumstances and the condition of your existing teeth.

And regardless of the type of tooth bridge that’s used for you, the one thing that’s certain is that it will do a perfectly good job for you in filling in that gap in your smile, and restoring your full quotient of social confidence.


And regardless of which type your dentist opt for, we think you’ll be very pleasantly surprised by how affordable it is to have your smile restored via a dental bridge. At modern dental surgeries like MyDental, the process has become very streamlines, which means that we’re masters of getting the job done quickly but professionally.


This means that we can afford to charge you less for the time it takes. And remember that you don't necessarily have to shell out all at once for your treatment. Instead, you can opt for our 0% Dental Finance Plan, which lets you spread the cost over three months, six months or nine months.


This can be a very handy service at those times of year when you find yourself with a lot of outgoings – perhaps bringing the family on holiday during summer or shelling out for the cost of Christmas?


And in assessing the value for money you're getting, you should also consider that you’re getting a treatment that will probably last you for the rest of your life, assuming you take care of it in accordance with our instructions. We think this makes it very good value indeed!
