Dental bridges are used for a mouth missing one or more teeth. The dentists at Alpha Dental Center, including our office affiliates, will examine your mouth to make certain that your remaining teeth are strong enough to secure a restorative fixed dental bridge.
Types of Bridges
- Fixed: For a fixed bridge, your dentist will reshape the teeth on each end of the gap between teeth to enable secure bonding with the new restoration. Then an impression will be modeled of your mouth, so the lab can create a bridge which will be comfortable and look natural.
- Implant-supported: If you choose this type of bridge, your Alpha Dental professional will surgically implant 2 or more titanium posts in your jaw to permanently secure the dental bridge. This type of bridge is even more secure, and its direct link to the jaw helps keep the jaw bone stimulated and healthy.
