Dental Bridges

A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap - these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth - and the dental implant is placed in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restore your natural smile

  • Improve your ability to properly chew

  • Improve your speech by allowing you to speak clearly

  • Maintains the natural shape of your face 

  • Distributes the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth

  • Prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of position

 

For patients who are missing several teeth in a row or whose remaining teeth aren’t healthy enough to be used as anchors, bridged implants may be an option. Our dentist will install implants in place of anchor teeth and then fit a bridge (made from two crowns and one or two pontics) over them. This option is more cost-effective than replacing each tooth with an individual implant, since it uses fewer implants.
