If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in
speaking. There are options to help restore your smile.
Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating
the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing
teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the
gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be
made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these
materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a
removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge
can only be removed by a dentist.
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or
under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge your dentist
recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it's very
important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
