Missing teeth not only ruins your smile, but can also cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease, and a greater chance of tooth decay.
An effective treatment for missing teeth are bridges. A dental bridge is a dental restoration practice that replaces one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap created by lost teeth. Restoring the missing teeth will allow you to chew food and speak properly. Best of all? You can smile confidently again.
Traditional bridges are connected to create a crown for the tooth on either side of the missing tooth with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are most common and are made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
Cantilever Bridges are used when there is only one neighboring tooth to the gap. It is used to replace only one tooth.
Maryland bonded bridges are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal or porcelain frame work. Metal or porcelain wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
To prolong the life of your bridge, you need to take good care of it by brushing and flossing every day just like your natural teeth. We will help you every step of the way as you adjust to your new bridge. We promise you will love your new bridge, and new smile!
