What are bridges?

Dental bridges are fixed dental prostheses used to replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap between adjacent teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth called pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns or implants on either side of the gap. Dental bridges are custom-made to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, providing a seamless restoration.

Do I need a bridge?

You may need dental bridges if you have one or more missing teeth and wish to restore your smile and oral function. Some common reasons why dental bridges may be recommended include:

- Missing teeth: Dental bridges are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, and restoring your ability to speak, chew, and smile with confidence.

- Adjacent teeth support: Bridges rely on adjacent teeth for support, making them a suitable option if you have healthy teeth adjacent to the gap left by missing teeth.

- Prevention of teeth shifting: Dental bridges prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into the empty space, maintaining proper dental alignment.

- Improvement of oral function: Bridges restore the ability to bite and chew properly, improving overall oral function and preventing jaw problems.

- Enhancement of appearance: Dental bridges fill in gaps left by missing teeth, improving the appearance of your smile and boosting self-confidence.

If you're experiencing any of these issues due to missing teeth, consulting with a dentist can help determine if dental bridges are the right solution for you.
