Even a single missing tooth can cause problems for your smile. If you have lost a tooth or several teeth next to one another, you may not want to take care of a partial denture, and you may not be a candidate for dental implants. Our dentist can provide you with a custom dental bridge. A bridge is cemented in place in your mouth and consists of two crowns and a row of artificial teeth. Our dentist will remove the dentin from your teeth on each side of the space in your smile and cement the crowns and the bridge in place, completing your smile.
At our office, we can use a dental bridge to improve your appearance and your ability to eat and speak, keep your other teeth from drifting out of their proper positions, and alleviate extra stress on your bite. A bridge can also be used to replace a partial denture. You will be able to brush your bridge just as you would your normal teeth, and our dentist can show you how to use a proxy brush or floss threader since it can be tricky to use regular dental floss on a bridge.
If you are tired of living with an incomplete smile, call our office today for your appointment.
