What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a type of tooth replacement. Bridges are fixed dental restorations, meaning that they are non-removable and provide a very stable replacement for your missing teeth. A dental bridge can be used to replace either one missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. The traditional fixed bridge includes two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth (called pontics). The crowns are placed on the teeth next to the space left by the missing tooth, supporting the artificial replacement teeth and ensuring that the bridge is secure. Our friendly dentist, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt, will make certain that your bridge effectively restores your smile. When in place, a custom dental bridge in Logan, Utah can improve the appearance, health, and function of your smile.

Should I get a dental bridge or a partial denture?

Dental bridges and partial dentures serve the same purpose of replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges are stable, fixed restorations, while partial dentures are removable and are attached to the neighboring teeth through a metal framework or clasps. If you are interested in a more permanent, stable tooth replacement, bridges are an excellent choice. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more!
