Benefits of a Dental Bridge

smilingGaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite.

The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Bridges will:
  • Restore your smile
  • Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

What is Dental Bridge?

dental
Bridges span the space created when teeth are missing. A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth..

  • A dental bridge consists of two crowns which are attached on either side of the pontic – the replacement tooth.
  • These two crowns are cemented to the abutments – the natural teeth or implants on either side of the empty space and act as anchors for the pontic.

As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Our dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

Contact us today and schedule an appointment with our office to get an opinion on your need for dental bridges.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any aspect of your dental health – we don’t charge for giving advice!
