Missing teeth can cause serious dental issues such as additional tooth loss, increased risk of gum disease, and TMJ disorders. A crown and bridge, also called a fixed bridge, can not only alleviate these issues, but will also restore your natural bite and provide internal structure for your face.
A crown and bridge is a dental prosthesis. The bridge is where the replacement tooth is located. It’s attached to one or both sides to teeth prepared with crowns. A crown and bridge can also be affixed by a dental implant, which is a metal post embedded into the jaw. This option has the additional benefit of preventing bone loss.
A crown and bridge is a great option to restore your smile! You maintain it the same way you do your other teeth, with brushing, flossing, and regular checkups. With proper, consistent care, your crown and bridge can last a lifetime.
