A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth.
It consists of an artificial tooth which replaces the missing tooth and is supported by the teeth adjacent. A bridge satisfies the aesthetic component of a missing tooth and it also provides a means to restore function and chewing capacity.
The advantages of dental bridges include:
Restores your smile and your ability to properly chew and speak
Maintains the shape of your face
Distributes the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
Stops remaining teeth from drifting out of position
