DENTAL BRIDGE COST IN HOUSTON, TX
Dental Bridges Replace One Or More Missing Teeth
Dental bridges are an ideal solution for quickly fixing one or more missing teeth. When a tooth is lost or extracted, adjacent teeth may shift into the empty space and cause alignment issues and difficulty eating. A bridge is made up of a row of crowns that attach to the two adjacent teeth and fill the space in between. This simultaneously helps prevent the teeth from shifting and provides a restored bite. A bridge can also be fixed securely to the jaw bone with dental implants.
What Is The Difference Between A Dental Bridge And A Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are made to cover a chipped or damaged tooth, and can even be used to cover an implant. However, dental bridges are made to fill the gap between two teeth and essentially act as a false tooth. The middle, suspended tooth that fills the gap, is called a Pontic. A Pontic doesn’t require a root canal, nor does a dental crown.
What Is The Cost Of Dental Bridges In Houston?
The price of dental bridges in Houston depends upon a number of factors like the complexity and the number of teeth that are to be replaced.
Usually, dental bridges cost between $2500 and $8000. The lower limit is for the 3-unit dental bridge while the upper limit is for the 6-unit dental bridge. Whichever dental bridge type you choose, the price
will lie between these.

Does My Insurance Cover My Dental Bridge Treatment?

An Overview To A Dental Bridge Procedure
How Long Does A Dental Bridge Last?
Dental bridges are made up of almost the same material as the dental crowns, and that’s why fixed dental bridges also last for an average of 15 years. However, if you take good care of your fixed dental bridge, like brushing regularly and avoiding acidic beverages, then it can last up to 30 years.
Are Dental Bridges Better Than Implants?
No, fixed dental bridges are not better than dental implants. Fixed dental bridges are used to fill the gap between teeth, but to do that, adjacent teeth have to be damaged. The fixed dental bridge is placed on these adjacent teeth and can impact the dental structure as a whole.
On the other hand, dental implants replace the missing tooth without any damage to the adjacent teeth. Because dental implants replace the old tooth, they also preserve the bone structure of your jaw. Overall, dentists prefer dental implants over dental bridges.
