Pauly Dental in Wichita, Kansas
Dental bridges are most commonly used when a person’s tooth is missing.
If you are missing a tooth, you may consider getting a dental bridge or possibly an implant. Both have their benefits and should be chosen according to individual needs. A dental bridge is secured by placing a crown on both sides of the missing tooth to serve as an anchor for the bridge.
Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently placed and typically are not removed on a regular basis.
A dental bridge is only as strong as the teeth and gum that it is anchored to. It is crucial to keep your existing teeth and gums healthy.
