If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to disease, decay or other causes, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic device used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement. Tooth replacement helps to keep your surrounding teeth from shifting into the gaps created by tooth loss and maintains the natural strength of your bite.
If left untreated, structural changes to your teeth, mouth and jaw may occur. This can lead to difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions, resulting in the need for further and more invasive treatment. In some cases, the additional wear on your teeth caused by these issues can cause damage, decay, and eventually tooth loss.
A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. Bridges are made strong and durable dental-grade materials. At Haake Family Dental, we use porcelain for a long-lasting and natural-looking restoration.
If you’re considering replacing a missing tooth, contact us to schedule a consultation. Our team can help you understand your condition and determine the best course of treatment to meet your needs.
With appropriate at-home and professional care, your dental bridge may last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Once placed, you can care for your dental bridge just like your natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice daily and floss daily to maintain good oral health. Our dentist recommends visiting our office every six months to assess the condition of your bridge.
