Dental bridges are indicated for areas in the mouth where teeth are missing. Traditionally bridges are made up of a crown on each side of a missing tooth area, which is called abutments, and a crown that seats in the area where a tooth is missing, this is known as a Pontic. The materials that bridges are made of are similar to those of crowns (Porcelain, PFM, Gold, Zirconium, and more). In some cases Bridges are more ideal than removable dentures, however, in some cases, some factors may contraindicate a crown and other options (i.e. partial dentures) may be more ideal. Your dentist will discuss with you the most ideal options for your case.
benefits of a dental bridge
If you’re missing one or multiple teeth, your oral health is at risk. Investing in a dental bridge can:
- Restore your smile
- Improve your chewing ability
- Maintain your facial structure
Dental bridges can also improve your speech and pronunciation and prevent your other teeth from moving out of place.
