Fixed Bridges

A bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more natural missing teeth, thereby "bridging" the space between two teeth. Fixed bridges are cemented into place on the abutment teeth (the surrounding teeth on either side of the space) with the pontics (the false teeth) between them. Unlike removable partial dentures, fixed bridges cannot be taken out of the mouth by the patient.

Fixed bridges not only replace missing teeth but also correct an altered bite, improve your chewing ability and speech, safeguard your appearance, and prevent the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines.

If left unfilled, this space can cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease that can cause further tooth loss.
