A solution for enhancing appearance and improving bite and chew function where teeth are missing.
In simple terms, bridges are replacement teeth constructed to bridge the gap caused by missing teeth.
Helping prevent adjacent and opposing teeth from moving, they are commonly used where teeth on either side of a missing tooth would benefit from the protection offered by a dental crown. In some instances, it is possible to attach the replacement tooth to the adjacent natural teeth by using a bonded retainer or attachment.
Bridges are beneficial if you are concerned about:
- The appearance of a single missing tooth or multiple teeth
- Incorrect biting or chewing because of missing teeth or movement of teeth
- Problems with jaw joints
- Gum disease that occurs in and around teeth that are difficult to clean due to the movement of teeth
Any one of the Define Dental dentists is skilled in the design and creation of beautiful looking bridges that can make a difference to everyday activities like smiling, biting and chewing.
