When you lose a tooth, there are several concerns to address. The most obvious is the visual effects that tooth loss can have on your smile, which can lead to a decrease in self-confidence. The less obvious effects include risks to your oral health. These can include the drifting of remaining teeth to fill the empty space leading to crooked teeth, bite misalignment, and more. To address these concerns, we can custom-craft a dental bridge to replace your lost tooth/teeth and help eliminate the development of future dental issues.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge earns its name by “bridging” the gap between two teeth when one or more adjacent teeth are lost. A bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth in a row, and a pair of dental crowns on each end of the prosthesis. The crowns are bonded to the remaining adjacent teeth, called abutment teeth, which hold the bridge in place as you bite, chew, and speak.
Alternatively, you may benefit from securing your bridgework to one or more dental implants. The implanted posts act as prosthetic roots or anchors for your dental bridge, holding your replacement teeth comfortably steady and improving the long-term health and integrity of your supportive jawbone.

The costs of your Bridges may be covered by your dental insurance plan or extended dental coverage.
