A dental bridge is indicated to replace a missing space where a tooth has been removed or fallen out. A bridge is cemented permanently into the mouth and “joins” the gap between two healthy teeth. Without the use of bridges, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift, leading to problems with one’s bite. It can also increase risk of periodontal disease and cause many other issues. Dental bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile.
