Before replacing teeth with implants, bridges were widely chosen for tooth replacement, because they are permanently cemented, and don’t need to be removed at night.
What are the advantages to replacing a missing tooth with a bridge? By replacing missing teeth, you help your overall bite remain stable, and prevent shifting of nearby teeth. This can also help improve your ability to eat the foods you love, smile with confidence, and help with speech. A bridge is a permanent solution to a missing tooth that does not involve surgery, so patient’s that are not a candidate for implant surgery due to medical reasons may have success with a bridge.
