Durable, comfortable Dental Bridges

dental bridge to replace missing teeth

Dental bridges are used to fill the gap left by a missing tooth. Bridges require adjacent teeth to be ground down to support the bridge.

A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace a missing tooth, or teeth. It is comprised of a series of artificial teeth that are secured to the patient’s own teeth which have been prepared as part of the procedure.

Individual treatment planning

Dr. Grimshaw treats each case – each person – individually. There a variety of options for replacing missing teeth, and she will offer a solution that best suits your needs.

When a traditional bridge is the best solution

With a dental bridge, the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth need to be ground down as part of the procedure. These prepared teeth will be used to anchor the bridge. If these teeth already have crowns, large fillings or other damage, a bridge may be the good solution.

Dental Implants as an option for replacing a missing tooth

With a dental implant, there is no need to alter healthy teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.

With a dental implant, there is no need to alter healthy teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.

Dr. Grimshaw wants to preserve as much of your original tooth structure as possible. If teeth adjacent to a missing tooth are completely healthy, she will recommend a dental implant as the most conservative and wise solution. This way, the patient’s healthy teeth do not need to be altered.

About Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw and is used to support a crown, bridge or denture to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or to support a restoration such as a bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth.
