Dental Bridges

If for any reason you have lost a tooth or teeth which has resulted in a gap between your remaining teeth, you are likely a candidate for a bridge. Your other options are dental implant replacements or removable partial dentures. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile.

 

Disadvantages of dental bridges

  • The teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth must be prepared for a restoration

  • All of the teeth in the dental bridge are connected, so flossing is more difficult

  • If one tooth on the bridge has a problem, the whole bridge must be replaced
