    What is a dental bridge?

    A dental bridge has one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics and is created using several materials such as ceramics and metal alloys used to replace missing teeth. We take impressions of your mouth and send them to a lab where your bridge is custom-made to fit in with the rest of your teeth.

    Why do I need a dental bridge?

    While many individuals are concerned about how missing teeth can alter their appearance, many don’t consider the negative effects it can have on their oral health. Your other teeth will try to compensate for the missing ones and move into the vacant spaces, causes issues with your bite and potentially damage the surrounding teeth. Missing teeth can also trigger other issues like speech impediments, TMJ disorders, tooth decay, and bone loss.

    How do I take care of a dental bridge?

    To keep your bridge working properly, it's essential you practice good oral hygiene. You should give your bridge extra attention when brushing an flossing. Since bridges are commonly secured by surrounding teeth, it's crucial to keep them strong and healthy so they can continue to support your bridge. 

    Regular Checkups

    We recommend scheduling routine appointments so we can ensure your bridge is holding up well and make any necessary modifications. It is recommended by the American Dental Association that patients of every age see their dentist at least two times a year.
