Looking For a Dental Bridge Dentist in Newport Beach, CA?
What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge can replace one or more lost teeth by using artificial (false) teeth to bridge the gap. A bridge is often comprised of crowns that are cemented in place on each side of the missing tooth or teeth that are supporting the pontic (false tooth).
What does a dental bridge look like?
Dental Bridge consist of :
- Abutment teeth: A dental professional places two crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap ( missing tooth ). These anchoring teeth, or supporting teeth, can be your natural teeth or dental implants.
Pontics: This false tooth (or teeth) fills in the gap and attaches to the crowns
Why do I need a dental bridge?
Your teeth work together. If a tooth is missing, nearby teeth can move into the empty space. Your opposing jaw’s teeth may also shift upward or downward toward the gap; this is known as hyper eruption and it can lead to:
- Bite problems.
- Chewing difficulties.
- Pain from the extra stress on your teeth and jaw.
- Self-consciousness about the way you look or your smile.
