Missing teeth change the appearance of your smile and place greater strain on all other teeth used for chewing and in particular the teeth either side of the ‘gap’.
A gap can also mean your bite (occlusion) is affected and most probably cause the teeth next to this space to eventually lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to both decay and gum disease often resulting in the loss of further teeth.
Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or by implants and are made by creating a crown for each supporting tooth or implant on both sides of the gap with a false tooth/teeth between the crowns filling the space between.
A Bridge will last many years and help you maintain a healthy, vibrant smile and safeguard the integrity of existing teeth.
After a thorough examination, our Dental team will advise you on the best way of replacing your missing teeth.
