Dental bridges are utilized to replace missing teeth. A bridge resembles natural teeth and can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. If a space in the mouth where the teeth are missing is left untreated, it can lead neighboring teeth to shift, malocclusion (a bad bite) and/or jaw problems. Filling a space with a pontic (a lab created tooth) and two crowns will leave the space filled and healthy for the future. The bridge will resemble natural and adjacent teeth and can maintain the overall structure of your teeth and mouth, leaving you healthy and comfortable.
