Dental bridges are a teeth replacement option for patients who would like to fill the gaps in their smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a restorative treatment designed to replace one or more missing teeth. It extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between a bridge that joins to adjacent teeth.
A bridge is considered permanent and cannot be removed. However, depending on your oral health situation, you may need to get it replaced after a few years.
Why would I consider a dental bridge?
A dental bridge can:
- Improve alignment of teeth
- Improve bite
- Improve the aesthetic of your smile
- Improve jaw movement for better mobility of chewing and speaking
- Preventing remaining teeth from drifting out of position
