Why would I need a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap where teeth used to be. Bridges consist of one or more false teeth (pontics) anchored on crowns fitted over the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth space.
Bridges not only restore your smile, but they also help maintain the structure of your face, prevent drifting of remaining teeth, and make eating and speaking easier. Our experienced emergency dentists provide fast bridge repairs or replacements. If your bridge is damaged, has fallen out or is causing pain, call us right away. We will conduct an exam and recommend repairing, re-cementing the bridge or fabricating a completely new one.

What are the three types of dental bridges?
There are three types of dental bridges: traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges. Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic (false tooth) in between. Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth. Maryland bridges consist of a metal or porcelain framework with a false tooth attached, which is bonded to the back of adjacent teeth.
