You may be aware that if you have a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth begin to twist, drift and distort the way the upper and lower teeth meet when you close your mouth. The change of your natural arch form may cause other problems, like headaches, jaw joint pain, periodontal disease, and sometimes even necessitating the removal of surrounding teeth. Fixed bridges have been utilized for many decades to replace missing teeth. There are many types of bridges that can be fabricated depending upon the case. A bridge is designed to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The fixed bridge is used in conjunction with adjacent teeth to support natural looking teeth that rest in open spaces. A bridge will provide a strong, beautiful, lifelike appearance while also restoring function.
