Dental Bridges is used to replace a single or many missing teeth by borrowing the strength of adjacent teeth to attach the missing teeth in a non-removable fashion. By eliminating gaps and restoring your full smile, you can correct your bite so that it is easier to talk, bite, and chew. There are several types of fixed dental bridges available, including: conventional fixed bridges, resin-bonded bridges, cantilever bridges, and a dental implant supported bridge.
When a tooth is missing for a long period of time, the remaining healthy teeth will begin to shift and move in order to fill the gap, sliding out of their correct position. This shift adds extra, and often uneven pressure onto your jaw. This could eventually cause you jaw problems and increase the risk for gum disease, and adversely affect the way your smile looks.
