A Dental Bridge is often recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. Gaps caused by missing teeth may cause other teeth to shift or rotate, eventually resulting in a bad bite and appearance. Additionally, the disproportionate balance caused by missing teeth can lead to Temporomandibular disorders and gum disease.
However, a Dental Bridge can correct gaps and future dental problems. Dental Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the gap. The neighboring teeth serve as "anchors" for the bridge. Dr. Bell works with patients to decide what materials and options are best for you. Bridges last many years and are a great option for those who already have dentures and would like a more permanent dental device.
Before a bridge is made, Dr. Bell takes into account its function, your needs, esthetic considerations, cost, and your overall dental health to ensure the best result possible.
