Dental Bridges in Charleston, SC

All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing, and maintaining the proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth they must be replaced to maintain the proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss.

Dental Bridge Options

bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges that are permanently attached are called fixed bridges.

Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth.

What exactly is a bridge?

A bridge is a device that fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for many daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it’s difficult to do these things. Missing teeth can and should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.
