A bridge can replace one or more missing teeth. If a tooth is lost through sport or an accident, root fractured or badly decayed teeth to try to save a bridge may just be you best option. Gaps left from the missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty space. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth attached and anchored to the adjacent natural teeth either by ways of a crown or wings that are cemented and sealed to the back of the adjacent teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants , filling there space . Like crowns there are many different kinds of bridges which can be made and our professional dentists will consult with you advising you of the best treatment.
