A dental or tooth bridge is a restorative dental appliance which is used to bridge a gap left by missing teeth. Dental bridges are designed to look, feel and function just like a natural smile and are designed to blend with the patient’s smile, making treatment virtually unnoticeable. Dental bridges are typically held into place using dental crowns placed on adjacent natural teeth, however, dental implants can also be used depending upon the state of your oral health and smile.
Did you know that having missing teeth can have more of an impact than just on the appearance of your smile? When you are missing a tooth, demineralization and bone loss begins to occur, actually having a big impact on the health and function of your smile. Loose teeth, tooth shifting, teeth misalignment and even tooth loss can occur. The shifting of teeth can also make it more difficult to properly care for and clean your smile, increasing your risk of tooth decay, cavity formation, oral infections and even periodontal gum disease.
