The term bridge used in dentistry explains much of the appliance itself as it bridges the gap between missing dentition. On both sides of the gap, the natural teeth is prepped for a crown. These prepped teeth serve as an anchor and attaches to the pontic which are false teeth that fill in the gap area. Using the advance features of a zirconia bridge, our office can provide the patient with a beautiful and natural finish to complete their smile. Bridges should be treated like your natural teeth and requires cleaning and flossing around the area to ensure a longer life span. Over a long period of time, your dentist may recommend a new bridge when appropriate. It is recommended that you follow up with your dentist every six months for a cleaning and check up to detect any early signs of problematic symptoms.
