If you’re missing one or more teeth, Dr. Ron Sherman may recommend a dental bridge to fill the gap. A row of porcelain crowns is anchored to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth (teeth) to cover the gap.
The First Impressions Dental Care dentists and staff draw upon more than 20 years of experience in restorative dentistry to create durable bridges that fit well and function naturally.
Dental bridges have been used to replace a person’s missing teeth for many years, but their longevity is limited and they are not as durable and stable as dental implants. Bridges also require the cutting down of healthy teeth in order to support them. Recent breakthroughs in advanced, modern dentistry have made dental implants the preferred alternative for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants feel more natural like your original teeth and can last a lifetime. The average lifespan of a dental bridge is about ten years. With dental implants, there is no bone recession or tooth decay.
Implant-supported bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but are supported by implants rather than the patient’s adjacent teeth. Implant-supported bridges are used when the patient is missing three or more teeth in a row and are stronger, more durable, and can withstand greater bite pressure than traditional bridges.
