A dental bridge is a permanent replacement to your missing teeth.
The dental bridge acts as any other bridge by filling up the gap between two existing teeth. The teeth on either side are taken as support for the bridge. The bridge replaces the missing teeth region.
Your dentist might recommend bridges where a tooth, or series of teeth, is missing. Bridges are commonly used
- To improve the appearance and function of your teeth
- To rectify the effectiveness of your bite
- To protect and strengthen damaged teeth
- To close wide gaps between teeth
If you are not sure if you need dental bridges, book yourself in for a full dental checkup and your dentist will advise on the best and most effective course of treatment for your needs.
