Dental Bridges in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Dental Bridges are false teeth, known as a pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place that are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech.

Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more. First, Dr. de Windt prepares the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to receive crowns. Then, a false tooth is attached between the two crowns. Once the crown-false tooth-crown combination is cemented into place, it “bridges” the gap left by the missing tooth.

Bridges offer several benefits:

-They look like new teeth
-They are a durable mouth fixture
-They prevent surrounding teeth from shifting to fill the gap
-They restore a more natural bite and chewing ability

For these reasons, dental bridges are a good investment compared to dentures. If a bridge is not possible, or the adjacent teeth don’t need crowns, dental implants may be the best alternative.
