What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) replacement for one or more missing teeth. If you have lost one tooth or a couple of teeth in a row because of decay, advanced periodontal disease, trauma, or another reason, our dentists may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. The bridge is designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth and is made of two dental crowns and one artificial tooth. The artificial tooth, called a pontic, is held in place in the gap left by the missing tooth by the two crowns, which are attached to the neighboring natural teeth or dental implants. This ensures that your dental bridge is secure and will not come loose easily.
Do I need a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is typically used to replace between one and three missing teeth in a row. Our dentists may recommend a bridge as a good option for your smile if you are searching for a restoration that can:
- Prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of their proper positions
- Alleviate excess strain and stress on the bite
- Restore your ability to correctly speak, chew, and eat
- Improve the appearance of your smile as a whole
