Dental bridges are appliances used to fill the gap left from a missing tooth that has been removed, fallen out, or has never grown in because of genetics. By attaching a pontic (artificial tooth) to two nearby teeth (abutments), the space where your tooth used to be will be filled and you will have a beautiful, complete smile once again. Bridges are a wonderful option for patients who are missing any teeth because they can help prevent:
- The shifting of teeth due to extra space
- Bite problems
- Change in your natural face shape
- TMJ problems
The best part about dental bridges is that once in place, no one can tell you are missing a tooth! Please give Dr. Politmi Mantzouranis, DDS’ office today to schedule your dental bridge treatment today.
