Dental BridgesAn Overview

dental bridge ottawa onA dental bridge, or a partial fixed denture, is used to replace lost or missing teeth. It can be used to replace one tooth or may be used to replace multiple consecutively missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth is important for restoring the aesthetic and oral health to your smile. A dental bridge can be used to replace teeth that need to be extracted or teeth that were previously lost.

Villanova Dental Studio offers a range of missing teeth replacement options including dental bridges. Using the latest in dental technology and techniques, today’s fixed dental bridges are natural looking and allow for better function when compared to traditional options.

A dental bridge requires healthy surrounding teeth or the placement of dental implants for support. The bridge holds prosthetic teeth and uses the adjacent teeth as support to hold the bridge in place. A dental crown may be used to reinforce the structure of the supporting teeth if natural teeth are being used. A dental bridge can also be secured using a dental implant to avoid compromising the integrity of existing teeth.
