A bridge is a custom made dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. A fixed bridge is cemented into place and is not removable unlike a partial denture.
A bridge is an excellent choice of treatment to fill a space left by missing teeth. If the space is left unfilled, the adjacent teeth will drift out of position which may lead to tooth decay and gum disease. A bridge can also restore the proper bite relationship improving your chewing ability and speech.
A fixed bridge can last as many as 10 years or longer. It is very important to maintain optimal oral care and have regular scheduled visits here at South Bolton Dental to prolong the life span of your dental bridge.
