Dental bridges are a popular restorative solution for patients who have one or more missing teeth.
A dental bridge is a custom-made prosthetic device that fills in the gap of missing teeth. It consists of one or more dental crowns called abutments, which anchor the bridge to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The false tooth, or pontic, is positioned in the middle, effectively “bridging” the empty space.
One of the key benefits of dental bridges is their capacity to restore your ability to speak and chew properly. They provide stability and support, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap which can lead to bite problems and further tooth loss. Bridges also help maintain the natural shape of your face, preventing a sunken appearance that can occur when teeth are missing.
