Comfortable, durable Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges, JacksonvilleA dental bridge is a restoration used to replace a missing tooth, or teeth. It is comprised of a series of artificial teeth that are secured to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.

Our doctors have a great deal of experience with providing solutions for missing teeth. They choose dental bridges when a patient doesn’t have sufficient bone to support a dental implant and doesn’t want to undergo surgical procedures to augment bone.

We also use transitional dental bridges for children who are missing a tooth, but are too young to receive dental implants. Our bridges are usually made with porcelain fused to metal for added strength and durability.

Other options for missing teeth

Implants are anchored into the jawbone, with no alterations to adjacent teeth.

Implants are anchored into the jawbone, with no alterations to adjacent teeth.

Placing a bridge requires that the teeth adjacent to the gap be altered so that they can be fitted with crowns that anchor the bridge. In cases where the adjacent teeth are healthy and attractive, we usually recommend a dental implant, so that the healthy teeth do not need to be altered.

Dental implants are the modern solution for missing teeth. They function, look and feel like a natural tooth, and they also provide the vital benefit of deterring bone loss.

Choosing the best option for you
