All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing, and in maintaining alignment of other teeth. If teeth are lost, they must be replaced to maintain proper function and to prevent further tooth loss.
Dental Bridge Options
Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the adjacent teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the adjacent teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by custom attachments.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it’s difficult to do these things. Missing teeth should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.
What exactly is a bridge?
A bridge is a device which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional. Removable bridges, as the name implies, can be taken out and cleaned. Fixed bridges offer more stability than their removable counterparts.
