Who will benefit from a bridge?

Bridges are often recommended when adjoining teeth need treatment. There are different types of bridges; they can be attached to implants or to existing anchor teeth in both ends of the bridge – or just in one end. All types will form a bridge between teeth – as the name implies.

 

A. Replace one or more teeth

If you need one or more teeth, many people would prefer having implants and crowns. However, implants require a solid bone structure. When implants are impossible, a bridge may be the best solution, as they can be attached to existing teeth.

 

B. Prevent teeth from moving into the empty space

An empty space after a lost tooth will slowly be occupied by the adjacent teeth. This can cause a troublesome bite, as the moving teeth will no longer fit with the teeth in the opposite jaw. A bridge can keep the teeth in their right position while filling the gap between them.
