What can bridges fix?
A dental bridge is a restoration designed to close the gap in your smile with an artificial tooth. We use highly esthetic, tooth-colored dental bridges in our Arcadia dental office because most patients don’t want to show off their dentistry when they smile.
A dental bridge is one of the most reliable ways to replace a missing tooth. Also called a “fixed partial,” dental bridges are permanently bonded to teeth and will not move or come out while you are eating.
Patients sometimes want an alternative to dental implant surgery because of cost limitations or because they do not have sufficient healthy bone to support a dental implant. Dental bridges do require us to alter one or two healthy, adjacent teeth to support the artificial tooth. Dental bridges are also limited in the number of missing teeth they can replace depending on the location in your mouth.
In most cases, dental bridges will last a number of years with the proper care.
- Keep gums healthy
- Avoid chewing ice
- Avoid sticky or hard foods
