A dental bridge replaces one or several missing teeth
. It is cemented or bonded in place and is permanent, so your replacement teeth will not need to be removed like dentures or partial dentures. In certain cases, your bridge can be anchored with dental implants
, providing replacement teeth that look natural and feel secure.
Why Choose a Bridge?
Missing teeth take away from the beauty of your smile and can cause long-term damage to your dental health. A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth with replacement teeth that match your natural teeth for a beautiful natural looking smile. You may even forget it is there. A bridge does not need to be removed from your mouth for cleaning.
A bridge is more comfortable and healthier than a removable partial denture. It stays in place so you never have to worry about looseness, and it looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth.
Anchoring Your Bridge
The healthiest option for keeping your bridge in place is a structurally sound anchor tooth. If the anchor teeth are not strong, then you may need a foundation buildup or a dental implant
. An implant replaces the natural tooth root, and does not affect the teeth on either side of the space. However, some people are not good candidates for dental implants and some prefer other dental treatment options.
Your bridge can also be anchored to the surrounding healthy teeth with porcelain and metal crowns
. This is a great solution if you do not have adequate bone tissue to support dental implants. You need to be in good health and have healthy gums, in order to have dental implants.
