Dental bridges have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth. Today, dental bridges are still considered one of the most durable, conservative and cost-effective ways to replace missing teeth. Comprised of at least two anchoring teeth and a replacement tooth, dental bridges help prevent surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, improve chewing, and speaking. However, bridges are not always the best option. In most cases, implant dentistry will be the optimal treatment option, as it is the most conservative and long lasting.
Benefits of bridges
- Prevent other teeth from shifting out of position
- Correcting bite
- Properly align jaw
- Improves ability to chew and speak
- Bridges are permanently fixed, preventing any movement like dentures
Dental bridges typically take 2-3 weeks to complete and with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits, dental bridges can last many years.
