What is the function of a dental bridge?

When you have a missing tooth, it can cause problems with your oral health by allowing your remaining teeth to shift toward the gap in your smile. This may expose the roots of your teeth, which can cause sensitivity and decay and it may also affect the integrity of your bite. A gap in your smile can also make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

One of the ways to prevent this from happening is to fill the gap in your smile with a dental restoration. Many of our patients choose to do this using a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a tooth-colored restoration that requires a crown on the two healthy adjacent teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. These two crowns will support an artificial tooth in place, filling the gap, and completing your smile. By having a dental bridge, you can keep your teeth from shifting and causing problems with your bite.

While dental bridges do not have the same bone retention benefits of dental implants, they provide a practical solution for patients wishing to have an alternate treatment.
