All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss.
Dental bridges are a great option for replacing missing teeth. It is a fixed, or non-removable option which can be anchored in place to replace one or more consecutive teeth.. A traditional dental bridge is a 3 (or more) fixed unit of joining crowns to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The teeth surrounding the missing tooth or teeth are prepared for crowns and the unit is cemented in place forming a "bridge" across the missing tooth space.
