What is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge consists of a replacement tooth or teeth that fill the space where one or more teeth are missing, helping to restore bite and natural jaw and smile shape.
Why Do I Need a Bridge?
Missing a tooth or few teeth can be very serious to your health. With the loss of a tooth, adjacent teeth may tilt or drift into the empty pocket, negatively impacting bite and adding stress to your teeth and jaw, causing discomfort and pain. Shifted teeth have a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
Also when a tooth or teeth are missing, the jaw bone may shrink, changing the jawbone support and alignment.
