A dental bridge fills the space between your teeth caused by tooth loss. They restore your ability to bite and chew.
Missing teeth impact your overall oral health. Losing your tooth or teeth also causes problems with your facial shape and muscle tone.
Dental bridges help prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting, impacting your bite alignment, and causing your facial muscles to sag.
Your dental bridge improves your appearance with a new tooth or teeth that closely matches your adjoining ones. This gives you renewed confidence to smile.
Dental bridges use your healthy teeth as support. This creates a solid-fit and enables your bridge to blend with your surrounding teeth. Your dental bridge cost depends on your treatment and the type of bridge used. Dental bridges can be fixed or removable.
A fixed dental bridge is supported by other healthy teeth that form an abutment. Permanent crowns are used on each side of your tooth gap to restore stability and function.
A removable dental bridge (or partial) attaches to your surrounding teeth. It clasps onto your supportive teeth, costs less, and can be removed for any future dental treatment.
Proper care for your dental bridge will help you maintain its function. Cleaning and careful handling can help it last for years.
