Types of Dental Bridges
A traditional dental bridge is an artificial tooth, also known as a pontic. The pontic piece is made of artificial teeth and it bridges the gap left by missing teeth. Whether you are replacing a single tooth or a number of consecutive teeth, a traditional bridge requires reshaping the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. This provides room for the dental crowns that are placed on these adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place.
A dental bridge or partial denture supported by dental implants is the next best thing to natural teeth. This is because dental implants are placed directly in your jawbone for unmatched stability. Dental implants are also the only treatment proven to stop the bone loss associated with tooth loss. We can perform every step of implant treatment in-house including any preparatory treatments needed to restore a patient's candidacy.
