Are you missing teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile? Is that one missing tooth on the side of your mouth driving you crazy?
A bridge (fixed partial denture) is a device which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional. A bridge attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth.
Why do I need a bridge? A bridge helps support your lips and cheeks. The loss of a back tooth may cause your mouth to sink and your face to look older. Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge. Teeth were designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and other oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of potentially harmful disorders.
