Get the Facts About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth using the surrounding teeth to support it. These surrounding teeth are called abutment teeth.
Dr. Winschel must assess the condition of your abutment teeth before installing a bridge. Then, he will put a crown on each abutment tooth, with the bridge attached to the crown. If you have damaged teeth around the gap, a bridge may not work for you.
Reasons to Consider a Dental Bridge
Many patients feel unsure how to move forward when they lose a tooth. A teeth bridge allows you to handle tooth replacement effectively. Replacing your teeth comes with several benefits, including:
- Improving your ability to eat and speak
- Giving you back your smile
- Stopping your teeth from shifting alignment
A bridge also helps with bite force distribution. If you lose teeth, it changes how you bite down on food. Eventually, it puts extra pressure on your other teeth, which may lead to damage or uneven wear.
You can address these issues head-on with a dental bridge.
