What is a Dental Bridge

A dental bridge fills gaps caused by 1-3 missing teeth. They restore the appearance and health of your mouth by covering spaces with false tooth supported by either dental implants, your natural teeth, or a combination of both. Bridges are cemented to your teeth and do not need to be removed to sleep or to clean them. Filling tooth gaps is important, not just for appearances, but for your long-term oral health. Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak or chew food and, with a gap, other teeth are free to shift around.

Advantages of Dental Bridges

There are a number of advantages to receiving a dental bridge. A proper fitting dental bridge will be able to prevent the adjacent teeth shift towards the space left by the missing teeth and stop future problems to your bite. The moving of teeth and potential bone loss in a jaw can also be prevented with a bridge and help maintain your facial structure. Finally, a dental bridge can help restore your natural smile. If you have any questions about dental bridges such as cost, how long a bridge lasts, or if you require a bridge at all, we would be happy to help answer them for you.
