If you have a missing tooth or teeth, at Sage Dental, we can help you decide what will be the best treatment option for you. We are happy to educate our patients on the advantages and disadvantages of dentures, implants and dental bridges.
So What is a Dental Bridge?
Similar to other bridges, dental bridges span a gap — specifically, a gap in the mouth caused by the loss of one or more teeth. A dental bridge extends across an area that has no teeth and is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between two crowns. It is attached to these neighboring teeth and cemented into place.
Dental bridges can:
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
The process for a bridge begins with preparing the teeth, taking impressions and fitting you with a temporary. A few weeks later, the temporary bridge will be removed and a new permanent bridge will be seated. Once fixed into place, the bridge is very stable and comfortable.
