Dental Bridges in Canton
A dental bridge is a false tooth that is used to fill the space created by a missing tooth or teeth. A space between your teeth can be potentially dangerous to your dental health, as it can cause your teeth to shift resulting in a change in your bite that could be painful or cause adjacent teeth to break. It can also lead to headaches or TMJ discomfort.
A traditional fixed bridge is the most common type of dental bridge, in which porcelain crowns are placed over the adjacent teeth, and another crown is fused to them to fill in the missing tooth. Another option to replace a missing tooth is a dental implant, which does not use the adjacent teeth for support.
