What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental BridgeThis dental appliance fits between two natural teeth in the mouth, to fill in the gap where teeth are missing. It is literally the tooth bridge that is secured into the mouth to fill in the space of one or more teeth that are missing.

When a dental bridge is created, there are two tooth crowns on either end of the bridge which fit onto the anchoring teeth that will be used. Between those crowns are false teeth, which are designed to match the shape and size of your mouth.

If natural teeth aren’t available to use as the anchoring teeth, then it is also possible to secure the dental appliance in place with dental implants. The best thing that you can do is talk with our team at Washington Dental Care to learn more about the right treatment for your individual situation.
