SKYS Dental Art provides many ways for patients to repair their smile. Whether it is through dental implants or a simple filling, our dentist can help find the right restoration for you. For a patient who is missing teeth, a dental bridge may be recommended.
Dr. Ashalatha Kancharla may recommend a bridge to improve any of the following:
- Unnecessary stress on the teeth when biting or closing the jaws
- The overall look of your smile
- Difficulty speaking due to lost teeth
- Difficulty biting and chewing food
- Lost facial volume
This treatment may also be used to replace an older restoration, such as dentures.
A bridge can restore a single lost tooth or multiple neighboring teeth. Unlike dentures, which are also often used to replace missing teeth, bridges are non-removable. The prosthetic tooth (or teeth) are anchored onto the neighboring teeth that sit on either side of the bridge site. These anchoring teeth may be the patient’s natural teeth or dental implants. A crown is placed on top of both with the bridge itself filling in the gap. The appliance is fitted to your unique smile, helping ensure that it stays in place and can last for years to come.
