Permanent Bridges 

A dental bridge is a restoration used to fill the space where a tooth is missing. A typical dental bridge consists of a pontic (a filler tooth) that is attached to two surrounding teeth by crowns (abutments). Once complete, this bridge structure is bonded or cemented into the teeth.

Without the use of a bridge, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to malocclusion (bad bite) and/or jaw problems.

In recent years, however, dental bridges are not the first choice for replacing one or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant is a more predictable, less invasive, and a more healthy option. If you have one or more missing teeth come in for a complimentary visit to discuss the best option for you.
