Dr. Salha’s Flushing, NY office can help with any level of restoration. A dental bridge may be called for when a single crown won’t quite do the trick, or if bone loss prevents an implant. Bridges may also be indicated along with implants in some cases where multiple teeth are missing or damaged, but dentures are not needed.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge at our Flushing, NY office is a permanent fixture that can replace one or more missing teeth. Each dental bridge includes a prosthetic tooth or teeth plus a dental crown on either end to anchor it. Those crowns may be supported by your natural teeth, or they may be cemented or screwed to implants.
Your dental bridge will:
- Fill in unsightly gaps left by missing teeth
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting and becoming crooked
- Give you a natural-looking and attractive smile
- Alleviate pressure and pain caused by an uneven bite
- Restore youthful and full facial structure
How to Care for Your Dental Bridge
Easy-peasy! If you’re taking good care of your teeth by brushing, flossing, and getting regular professional cleanings, then you’re also taking good care of your bridge.
Your dental bridge will be made with beautiful dental crowns and replacement teeth that will make you feel proud of your smile. You will be able to bite and chew without discomfort.
