Dental BridgesAn Overview
Dental bridges are an ideal restorative dental treatment for patients missing consecutive teeth. Dental bridges are a cost effective way to replace lost teeth. With modern dental technology dental bridges are now more natural looking and comfortable than ever before. There are two types of dental bridges and Dr. Haddad can help you determine which option will best restore your oral health.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is one of several treatment options to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is an oral restoration that is custom designed to fit comfortably over the adjacent teeth to replace a missing tooth or several consecutive teeth. Dental bridges can be removable or fixed and can be anchored with existing teeth or dental implants.
Types of Dental Bridges
Removable dental bridge: A removable dental bridge will require the adjacent teeth to be shaved down so that the bridge can securely fit in the mouth. Dental bridges require surrounding teeth to be used to anchor the bridge in place.
Fixed dental bridge: A fixed dental bridge offers patients a permanent and long term dental restoration- one that looks and feels the most like your natural smile. When using new dental implants to secure your dental bridge, Dr. Haddad will work with you to create a plan of treatment for placement of your new implants. Dental implant secured bridges do not require altering existing healthy teeth, providing a more secure foundation for a lasting, functional smile.
