A bridge is a dental device that replaces a missing tooth or teeth. A bridge may be necessary to prevent:
Shifting of the teeth that can lead to bite problems (occlusion) and/or jaw problems and resultant periodontal disease.
Bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile.
There are several different types of bridges, from those that are fixed in place to those that are removeable. We are happy to explain the pros and cons of each type if you need to replace missing teeth.
