PROSTHODONTICS

 

Prosthodontic treatments are designed to produce a balance between functionality, longevity

and esthetics. Prosthodontic treatments include the following:

DENTAL BRIDGE

 

A bridge is a dental device that is used to fill a space where a tooth has been removed.

The false tooth is attached to the other two teeth around the missing tooth to form a

bridge. Maintaining a good oral hygiene will increase the life of a bridge.

 

A dental bridge literally "bridges" the gap created by one or more missing teeth. That's a

good thing because missing teeth can cause surrounding teeth to shift, which may change

your bite or make your jaw sore.

 

Shifting teeth create new places for dental plaque to hide, increasing your chances of

needing a tooth filling or gum disease treatment.

 

Dental bridges serve an aesthetic purpose, allowing you to show off your beautiful smile without shame or fear that your missing tooth is what people will remember. They help your wallet, too, because dental bridges cost less than other methods of tooth replacement.
