A bridge can be used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Designed to help ‘bridge’ a gap in the mouth, a bridge uses the surrounding healthy teeth as support anchors for a prosthetic tooth or teeth. In some cases, we may also need to attach a crown in order to ensure the full functionality and health of the tooth.
Other than the traditional style of bridge described above, there are several different types of bridge available:
We might recommend a bridge if you have a missing tooth or teeth, or teeth that are in need of extraction. We always recommended replacing teeth wherever possible, as missing teeth can cause a variety of oral health issues.
These include increased risk of bone loss, increased risk of decay, and misalignment and movement of the remaining teeth. Missing teeth can also cause feelings of low self-esteem or self-consciousness when it comes to your smile, and we want to do everything we can to bring back your best smile.
If you think you may be in need of a bridge, or want to discuss any of the other restorative or cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer, feel free to contact us here at the practice.
