Address the spaces resulting from the absence of 1 to 3 teeth
- A dental bridge is used to restore the appearance and health of your mouth by filling in spaces with a false tooth.
- The bridge is supported by either dental implants, your natural teeth, or a combination of both.
- Also known as a “fixed partial denture,” the bridge is permanently bonded or cemented to your teeth.
- Unlike removable options, the bridge does not need to be taken out for sleeping or cleaning.
- Filling tooth gaps is important for both aesthetics and long-term oral health.
- Missing teeth can make it challenging to speak and chew properly.
- Gaps between teeth can cause neighboring teeth to shift position over time.
Long-Lasting Benefits Of Dental Bridges
Losing a tooth or teeth can cause self-consciousness and discomfort. However, a dental bridge not only restores your smile but also provides long-term benefits for your other teeth and overall oral health.
The advantages of a dental bridge include:
Experience immediate benefits that significantly impact your present well-being. Feel and appear normal once more, allowing you to smile and eat with confidence, reclaiming the familiar and cherished smile you adore. The discomfort and inconvenience associated with missing teeth can be alleviated through dental bridges, providing a lasting solution. With proper care, they can offer relief for more than ten years, ensuring a long-lasting and comfortable experience.
Missing teeth can lead to bite alterations and tooth shifting, affecting facial structure and oral health. A dental bridge prevents teeth from moving, reducing risks like decay, periodontal disease, jaw pain, and TMJ disorder.
Maintaining healthy and stable teeth is crucial for preserving the health of your jawbones. When dental health declines, the supporting bone and tissues suffer as well. By stabilizing your dental health through a dental bridge, you can effectively slow down the rate of bone loss caused by missing teeth.

What Our Patients are Saying
This place is great. They are honest and straight forward. They gave me accurate price quotes before I took my mom in, and when they saw her in person one of the recommended procedures wasn't needed so they reduced the price. They are really willing to work with you to get you what you need not just to have you walk in through the door with vague promises.
