Few incidents have greater impact on dental health and personal appearance than tooth loss. When one or more teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can drift out of position, which can lead to a change in the bite, the loss of additional teeth, decay, and gum disease.

 

When tooth loss occurs, we may recommend the placement of a bridge. When placing a bridge, the teeth (abutments) on both sides of the space are covered with crowns (caps/retainers), and an artificial tooth (pontic) is attached to the crowns.

Initially, the we prepare teeth on each side of the space to receive crowns and makes an impression of the entire area.

Next, we fit a temporary or transitional bridge made out of plastic or metal.

We removes the temporary bridge, then place the actual bridge unit, adjust, and then finally cement the fixed bridge.
