A dental bridge is essentially three crowns joined together to span the gap of a missing tooth. Some patients choose a dental bridge as a tooth replacement option instead of an implant. They often make this choice to avoid surgery, which is required to place the implant in the jaw. They may also choose to avoid an implant when they don’t have enough bone mass to support an implant and would require a bone graft procedure before the placement.
However, a dental implant may also be used to hold a bridge in place, so it’s also possible to use the tooth replacements in conjunction.
Is a Bridge a Good Choice for Me?
Dr Justin Ward at Arthur Street Dental can examine you in our Coffs Harbour dental practice to determine whether a dental bridge is the best option for your tooth replacement. During your exam, he will discuss your smile and oral health goals with you and answer any questions you may have about our various tooth replacement options.
If you decide together that a dental bridge will offer you the best solution for your missing tooth or teeth, we can move forward with creating your customised dental bridge.
