A dental bridge is made of two crowns and one or multiple false teeth. The crowns are used to anchor the restoration to natural teeth; the false teeth between the crowns are what directly fill in the gap. Placing a bridge prevents nearby teeth from moving into the empty space left by a lost tooth. Note that placing a bridge requires us to make alterations to your natural teeth. This is because there would otherwise not be enough room to place the crowns.
While bridges can be used to replace a few teeth in one spot, dentures are typically required for more extensive cases of tooth loss. You’re likely already familiar with full dentures that can replace an entire arch of teeth at once. However, partial dentures are also available if there are simply a few empty spaces that need to be filled in. Modern dentures are designed to be more comfortable than ever, and they can be fully personalized to look as natural as possible.
Did you know that crowns, bridges, and partial and full dentures can all be attached to dental implants? In other words, it’s possible to use implants to replace any number of teeth so long as your jawbone and gum tissues are healthy. Our practice can handle every step of the implant process, including the surgery to place dental implants into your jaw. Don’t be afraid to call and ask for a consultation so that we can figure out whether dental implants are right for you.
