Whenever you drive across a bridge, you're being supported by the same principles that support a dental bridge. Crowned teeth on either side of a space are called abutments. They support an artificial tooth, called a pontic. While a bridge lasts for many years, sometimes the strain of supporting one or more missing teeth can cause the abutments themselves to weaken and may lead to more missing teeth.
At Sunridge Dental Care, we make our bridges out of porcelain. Porcelain recreates the aesthetics and strength of tooth enamel for a long-lasting, natural-looking restoration.
Patients living with the loss of one or more teeth may benefit from a bridge because:
In many cases, dental implants offer a better alternative, eliminating most of the load-bearing strain you see in traditional bridge abutments. When carefully placed in the bone, an implant mimics the root of a tooth. They bear the load that the natural teeth used to hold, sparing the neighboring teeth from excessive forces. In some cases, two implants may be used to build a bridge.
Our skilled team of Dr. Peter Roukema and Dr. Kyle Henry knows how to bring the puzzle pieces together to fit any scenario regardless of the scope of your treatment.
