Dr. Perica Nonkovic offers dental bridges to his Grande Prairie patients who have missing teeth and are looking to maintain the structure of their smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge may be used to help patients with a missing tooth by filling the gap in the smile.
A bridge can also help prevent natural teeth from shifting or rotating into the empty space created from the missing tooth or teeth.
How would a dental bridge remain fixed in place?
Much like you might expect, a bridge attaches firmly to the remaining natural teeth on either side by 'bridging the gap' that is caused by a missing tooth or teeth.
As bridges attach to a patient's natural teeth, the longevity of the bridge will depend on the health of the supporting teeth.
