Dental Bridges in Mississauga
Mild tooth loss can affect patients at a much younger age than they would expect. In these cases, we may recommend dental bridges to close the gaps in your smile and restore a full, well-distributed bite. This simple but strong restoration will allow you to resume eating and speaking as usual, and can help maintain the alignment of the teeth and the shape of the face over time.
How Do Dental Bridges Work?
Essentially, a dental bridge uses two stabilizing teeth on either side of the gap (also known as abutment teeth) to hold a false tooth in place. Bridges come in many forms, including Maryland bridges (held in place by the natural teeth), traditional dental bridges (held in place by dental crowns), and implant-supported dental bridges (held in place by dental implants). Cantilever bridges can also be constructed when there is only one abutment tooth available.
