Helping Patients Get the Care They Need
A bridge is essentially a prosthetic tooth or teeth that attaches to one or both sides of dental crowns. A fixed bridge is similar in that it is a prosthetic, but unlike a bridge, it is permanently bonded with the crowned teeth. Fixed bridges consist of the false tooth or teeth, or pontic, as well as two abutment crowns.
The style of the bridge is based on unique factors, including:
- The strength and health of the abutment teeth
- The location and size of the gap
If the abutment teeth are not healthy, we may recommend the use of a dental implant, which is a metal post that is surgically implanted into your mouth.
If you require a bridge that replaces multiple teeth, our dental team can provide you with a denture, a removal dental implant. A fixed bridge can last nearly a decade with the right care. That is why patients turn to Smiles by Hale for dental bridge procedures in Naples.
