A dental bridge is an oral appliance which is designed to match with the patient’s existing natural smile. Dental bridges are used to literally bridge the gap that is created when teeth are missing from the patient’s smile. A dental bridge can be secured using dental crowns on healthy, adjacent teeth or with the use of dental implants, depending upon various factors. Dental bridges are secured into place, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods without having to worry about their “smile” popping out.
Did you know that having missing teeth actually impacts more than just the appearance of your smile? Once a tooth is missing, bone loss and demineralization occurs, leading to loose teeth, tooth shifting and ultimately even additional tooth loss. A dental bridge can ensure that teeth properly stay in place and that bone loss is minimized.
Getting a dental bridge is actually quite simple. Following your evaluation, impressions will be taken to fabricate your bridge. Your dental bridge is designed to match with your natural smile and will be secured once it is fabricated.
