Benefits of Dental Bridges
Bridgework offers a reliable solution for patients missing one or two teeth in a row. Most dental bridges consist of three parts: the two abutment crowns which are bonded to the teeth nearest the gap, and the artificial tooth they hold between them to replace the lost tooth. We can also place a dental implant secured bridge, a more conservative option that preserves more healthy tooth structure. Filling in gaps left behind by adult tooth loss is of vital importance and provides patients with a number of benefits, including:
- Preventing dental drift, a phenomenon where the remaining teeth gradually move toward the gap, often leading to misalignment issues and worn down enamel.
- Maintaining proper spacing along the dental arch, allowing patients to enjoy better oral health and less risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
- Completing your smile, improving your appearance, and making you look younger, healthier, and more confident.
