If you have lost your tooth recently, due to a medical condition, injury, or natural causes, you may be seeking options to restore your smile. A missing tooth can make an unsightly gap. A person may also experience pain when chewing, discomfort in his/her jaw, or other issues caused by a change to your bite. At Expressions DentalTM Clinic, our general dentists can provide you with one of the most common solutions to this problem.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic appliance, which literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A section of a missing tooth or teeth are replaced. As they are custom-made, bridges may be barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the proper bite relationship between lower and upper teeth.
