A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. This is a long-lasting, low-maintenance option that will restore your smile, your confidence, and even your ability to chew and speak – everyday functions which, surprisingly, can be greatly affected by the loss of just one tooth.
Over time, a missing tooth will also prompt surrounding teeth to shift into its space, which can cause a slew of problems, including:
- jaw misalignment,
- tooth decay,
- gum disease,
- & tooth loss.
An expertly fitted dental bridge will alleviate the physical and social discomfort associated with a missing tooth – restoring your health and your happiness in just two visits. Read on to learn more about this convenient and effective procedure. We use ultra-precise, microscope-assisted lab technology to ensure the perfect fit of all bridges.
Dental Bridge Procedure
A bridge consists of a false tooth, or pontic, which is supported by natural teeth or implants on each side. The pontic is “bridged” between the two healthy teeth.
There are three types of dental bridges:
- Traditional Fixed Bridges,
- Resin Bonded Bridges,
- & Cantilever Bridges.
The board-certified oral surgeons at Chicago Dental Arts will help you select the right dental bridging procedure according to your unique circumstances.
