Bridges

A gap in your teeth not only mars the aesthetic appeal of your smile, but can also affect the health of your teeth and gums, affecting your bite or putting strain on the teeth around it. Gaps in your teeth also trap food, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

Central Dental can solve your gap problem using either of two bridge methods. One option uses a removable false tooth or teeth, known as a partial denture. The other uses a fixed bridge.

A bridge is often the best option when there are fewer teeth to replace or the missing teeth are all on one side, because a bridge is like having two crowns cemented on the teeth on either side of the gap and joined with a fixed false tooth within the gap.

Many patients who are candidates for a bridge or partial denture are also candidates for the modern alternative to bridges: Tooth Implants. Your dentist will discuss the options available to restore your smile and good dental health when a gap in your teeth causes difficulty for you.
