How Long Does A Bridge Last On Average And Will They Fit Another When It’s Finished?

Hello Dr Shaffie. I heard someone say recently that a bridge should last between 10 to 15 years, right? After then what happens to it? Does it break or fall out? Is there a chance it can cause other health issues? I’m currently awaiting treatment for this and I’d like to know if it’s safe, also will they be able to fit me with a new one when it’s finished? I’m wondering how long the whole procedure takes as well. You would really be helping me by answering any of these questions and offering your expert advice. Thank you.
Hello, and thank you for your enquiry, your questions are greatly appreciated. Yes, you are correct, a dental bridge can last about 10-15 years on average. It can be removed and often doesn’t do any damage. Your dental health should be assessed regularly, any deterioration in your oral health over this length of time may require different treatment options. Ask your dentists to have a chat and ease any fears you may have regarding this issue. Many thanks, Dr Hussein Shaffie.
