Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are made up of two abutments, which may be strengthened by , and one or more artificial teeth that bridge the gap between the two abutment teeth. There are two kinds of dental bridges. One is the fixed bridges that are cemented into place on your teeth, and the other is a removable partial denture you can take out for cleaning and sleeping.

Reasons To Get a Dental Bridge

The simplest reason to get a dental bridge is to offer an effective way to bridge the gap where a tooth is missing. But, why bridge that gap at all, and why do it with a dental bridge rather than other restoration methods? Here are some of the most important reasons for choosing a dental bridge:

  • Makes chewing and speaking easier
  • Keeps teeth near the gap from shifting
  • Maintains a functional bite
  • Can improve your smile
  • Can prevent the appearance of sunken cheeks
  • Lower cost than implants
