BRIDGES

Bridges

Losing a tooth starts a cycle of destruction within your mouth.

In a normal, healthy mouth, each upper tooth contacts the corresponding lower tooth allowing for a well-balanced chewing function. Losing a tooth can quickly destroy this balance.

When this balance is lost, the companion teeth lose support, causing drifting, shifting, abnormal decay and periodontal disease. The neighboring teeth are quickly subjected to these conditions and with each lost tooth, the problems are magnified and the destructive cycle continues.

Replacing Missing Teeth With Bridges

A GREAT ALTERNATIVE

Fixed bridges are an excellent substitute for missing teeth. Bridges are non-removable and are most commonly made of porcelain and gold. A fixed bridge will not only replace missing teeth, it will also help create a normal bite, eliminate over eruption of opposing teeth, prevent the tilting of adjacent teeth and inhibit and slow the onset of periodontal disease. Very importantly, fixed bridges will enable you to chew your food properly, making eating much more comfortable.

FIXED BRIDGES LAST LONG

Fixed bridges are easily attached to abutment teeth. The pontic, (the part of the bridge which actually replaces the missing tooth) is attached to a crown which is then affixed to the abutment (existing) teeth. The entire fixed bridge is then cemented in place. This work takes only a few office visits to complete. Fixed bridges last for quite a long time, however re-cementing or replacing a bridge is at times necessary. Proper oral care and regular dental visits will help extend the life of your fixed bridge.
