Bridges

Teeth Gaps and Tooth Bridges

bridgesWhen we talk about tooth bridges we are talking about replacing missing teeth. Typically a gap of one or more teeth, where we crown the teeth on either side of the gap and connect them with lab fabricated teeth.

The alternative is usually a partial denture. The main difference between the two is that the tooth bridge is a single solid piece that is permanently cemented into the mouth (the partial needs to be removed and cared for).
