Is your smile incomplete? Are you missing any teeth due to an oral accident or injury? If you have lost or missing teeth, a dental bridge may be just what you need. Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between your teeth by filling in the void with suitable replacements that are both durable and permanent.

Dental bridges are used to help fill in the zones left behind by your smile. If these zones are left unchecked, they can become safe zones for bacteria and food residue to hide. They can also be springs of infection and even contribute to the weakening of your gums. If your gums begin to weaken and loosen, it will destabilize them causing other nearby teeth to move and rotate out of their natural positions. Dental bridges help you keep your facial structure intact and your gums protected.

Dental bridges are also an amazing alternative for individuals who lack the jawbone strength for dental implants. Whereas dental implants are directly installed into the bone, dental bridges are merely linked to other teeth, including if required, other dental implants. Dental bridges are permanent fixtures that can be easily repaired and replaced if required.
