A dental bridge is a false tooth placed between two crowns. The “bridge” is actually formed, in order to fill the spot of a missing tooth. Bridges can be used in place of any missing tooth. Leaving a space where a pulled tooth was can cause alignment and gum issues. It can also cause cosmetic distress. Some of the other great advantages of having a bridge include, decreased risk of gum disease, correction of bite issues and improved speech in many cases. Bridges are very natural looking and usually only require two visits to our dentist office. Maintaining proper oral hygiene can help your bridge last as long possible.
