Bridges

A dental bridge spans the gap where a missing tooth once was, filling the space with a synthetic tooth. Fitting a bridge requires reshaping the abutment teeth and capping them with crowns to hold the bridge securely.

Who Needs Dental Bridges?

Anyone who has missing or damaged teeth may be a candidate for dental bridges. Without something to occupy gaps, remaining teeth can shift position and alter your bite. These changes can lead to jaw pain, headaches and an increased risk of periodontal disease. Bridgework is more than a cosmetic procedure; it is essential to dental health. Bridges serve a number of purposes:

  • Restoring a healthy bite to facilitate chewing
  • Maintaining the contours of the face
  • Improving your smile
  • Reducing damage to remaining teeth from a misaligned bite
  • Restoring self-confidence after an accident or injury

Types of Bridges

Dental bridges are available as fixed or removable appliances. Your age, the health of your remaining teeth and your preferences determine which bridge type a dentist may fit. Both bridge types have their advantages, and both contribute to a healthier bite profile. Whether they are fixed or removable, bridges look indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
