Bridges

bridgesNamed, for the way that they “bridge” or replace missing teeth lost by trauma or tooth decay. A bridge is permanently attached to the adjacent teeth, which makes it much more functional when eating and talking.

If missing teeth are making you feel self-conscious, or you’re noticing problems with speaking, chewing, or any jaw pain please ask our Doctors if a bridge may be right for you.

Crowns that anchor bridges are made of either metal or tooth colored materials, and sometimes a combination of the two. Aesthetics, function, and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the best material for each individual case, pre treatment.

The image below shows a bridge replacing two missing teeth. Alternatives to a bridge would be a fixed dental implant or a removable partial denture.
