When space is left by missing or removed teeth, it can threaten your overall health. Missing teeth are more than a detriment to your smile and can threaten your dental and oral health. Without existing structure, teeth can become misaligned and lose overall structural integrity. Missing teeth can also mean a higher risk for gum disease and other periodontal issues.
Our dental bridges are fixed—a permanent solution that, unlike dentures, are non-removable. Each bridge is fitted and secured in place through two custom-fitted dental crowns. These are placed on the teeth (or implants) neighboring the gap left by missing teeth. The bridge is placed over this gap, restoring the function and appearance of your smile.
Dental bridges in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, can repair a variety of symptoms, such as:
- Allowing you to eat and speak normally
- Removing stress on your jaw or bite
- Restoring your face’s previous shape or volume
- Providing an alternative to a partial denture
- Retaining the existing alignment of the teeth
- Restoring the look of a smile
