If you are looking for a natural solution for missing or broken teeth, a dental bridge could be an excellent cost-effective solution. A dental bridge comprises two or more crowns that attach to teeth on either side of the gap, which serve as anchors; it essentially “bridges the gap” between two teeth.
The bridge works by creating a false tooth (or teeth) held in place with the help of the two remaining teeth on on either side. This is achieved by preparing the two teeth on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth and using those teeth to support a false tooth.
If your budget allows it, we would recommend that your bridge is supported by dental implants instead of using your teeth as anchors. This ensures that you maintain your natural tooth structure, and dental implants also prevent bone loss at the site of the missing teeth.
Dental implants are the standard gold treatment for the replacement of missing teeth. If you are missing a complete arch of upper or lower teeth, a bridge can be crafted and anchored to the jaw with 4 to 8 dental implants.
