Missing teeth replacement

Dental bridges are a restorative dental treatment which replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is fixed to supporting teeth, known as abutments, which are located on one or both sides of the missing teeth. A dental bridge is intended as a permanent solution to missing teeth, and they should not be confused with dentures. The false teeth used in a dental bridge are called pontics. These teeth can be made from a number of materials. Although in common practice, they are usually made from alloys, ceramic or porcelain. For the bridge to hold, your dentist will need to examine the abutment teeth to ensure they are strong enough to act as anchors. There are various types of dental bridges; however, traditional bridges are the most common. A crown is attached to either the abutment or a dental implant. This holds the pontic in place and fills the gap where teeth are missing.

Dental Bridge 

Replace missing tooth

 

As a bridge replaces missing teeth, there are a number of clear benefits. Cosmetically, a bridge will restore your smile and help boost confidence. Missing teeth affect speech, which can be addressed through having a dental bridge fill the gap. Eating with gaps between the teeth is much more difficult. When you have a bridge, full function is restored to your teeth.

Other benefits of a bridge are less obvious, however. When teeth are missing, it affects the distribution of your bite. By restoring missing teeth, your bite is readjusted with the proper force distribution. The longer teeth are missing; the more likely it is that surrounding teeth will begin to drift. This condition can affect the shape and function of your mouth.

If you have missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge. Contact Kyle Parkway Dentistry today to arrange an appointment and we can assess your needs.

    Melanie M.
  • When our dentist retired after 35+ years with him, had to find a new dentist and Kyle Parkway Dentistry was recommended to me by a friend. Made an appointment with a cracked tooth on Friday for following Monday and was actually called and seen earlier, on Saturday. Office and staff was very nice and felt welcomed. Exam and cleaning was great and everything was explained in a clear way. Very warm environment and liked watching TV while laying down! I think I made a good choice!
