Dental Bridges An Overview
Dental bridges have been a traditional option for replacing lost or missing teeth. An oral appliance that can be fixed or removable, a dental bridge can replace one lost tooth or “bridge the gap” between several consecutive lost teeth for a complete and functional smile. Dr. Hughes offers several treatment options for replacing missing teeth, including dental bridges that can be custom matched to your smile and permanently fixed with dental implants for a stable and secure result.
The many advances in materials, techniques and technology have benefited patients with dental restorations that are more life like and supportive of long term dental health. Dental bridges can now provide comfortable and lasting tooth replacement using high quality ceramics and advanced techniques for anchoring to neighboring teeth or new dental implants. Although dental bridges can be removable, a fixed option is recommended whenever possible to provide benefits for your overall dental health and quality of life.
It is important for the health and longevity of your smile to replace missing teeth as soon possible with the most appropriate option. Dr. Hughes takes all factors of your lifestyle, oral and overall health into consideration when recommending the most suitable treatment options for your smile.
