Fixed and Removable Bridges
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. There are options to help restore your smile.
Missing teeth can be replaced with artificial teeth to help maintain the shape of your face and alleviate the stress in your bite. The restoration can be made from gold, ally, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is attached onto surrounding teeth for support. Unsightly gaps can be eliminated resulting in enhanced chewing ability and a better appearance. Bridges are available in resin-bonded, all porcelain, PFM, and all metal.
There are various types of dental bridges. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.
Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge your dentist recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it’s very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
If you dealing with missing teeth, a bridge may be the solution for restoring your smile and your bite.
