A Stable Solution that Renews Your Smile
If you've lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a fixed bridge to restore your solid smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
What is a Fixed Bridge?
First of all, a bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. If the missing tooth is not replaced, more teeth may eventually be lost due to improper forces exerted during chewing. The style of bridge we suggest will depend upon the strength and health of the teeth, as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition. If healthy adjacent abutment teeth aren't available, a surgically-implanted metal post, known as a dental implant, may offer a solid alternative. For a bridge that replaces many teeth, we may recommend a removable partial denture or implant-supported prosthesis.
