Periodontal disease, trauma or an accident can result in loss of a tooth, leaving you with a “gappy smile”. The remaining teeth may drift out of position due to the excessive space. If untreated, this misalignment leads to problems such as a bad bite and speech impairment.
The bridge is anchored onto your natural teeth or to a dental implant adjacent to the gap. The prosthetic caps are created from a mould of your teeth, giving the bridge a comfortable fit and natural appearance. A dental bridge helps you to resume full functionality of your mouth while safeguarding the tooth and gum surrounding the gap.
