Dental Bridge Services
A dental bridge is designed to hold your other teeth in place and make everyday activities such as eating and talking easier. A dental bridge can also help preserve your teeth as a lost tooth can cause the rest of your teeth to loosen, which may lead to additional tooth loss.
Dr. Welton often recommends a dental bridge when a patient still has natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by a missing tooth. A dental bridge can even be strong enough to replace lost molars!
What is a Dental Bridge?
At Woodland Family Dental we offer beautiful bridgework to help restore your smile. Dental bridges are oral prostheses made up of two or more crowns that fill a gap in missing teeth. The crown on either end is called an "abutment," and is bonded onto existing teeth to support the bridge.
Is a Dental Bridge The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a dental bridge. A missing tooth should be treated seriously, as teeth are designed to work together. When you lose a tooth, the nearby teeth can shift or tilt into that empty space.
This can affect your bite and create stress on your healthy teeth and jaw, causing pain. After a dental bridge is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and be to smile with confidence!
