Overall, dental bridges are a valuable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health and function. They offer a durable and natural-looking solution for people looking to improve their smiles and quality of life after loss of teeth.
A dental bridge is a type of dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth attached to healthy teeth aka ‘abutment crowns’ which support the bridge. All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing, and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. If you lose functional teeth, it is important that they are replaced as soon as possible to maintain proper function of your mouth. Missing teeth can alter your speech, cause you to look older, place usual stress on the remaining teeth, and increase the likelihood of gum disease and future tooth loss.
