Replacing One or Many of Your Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge
Besides the visual mess caused by one or many teeth are missing, functional problems are also likely to appear. That is why it is of utmost importance to replace these teeth.
Groupe dentaire API’s dentists are fully qualified to design and install high quality dental bridges. Bridges are restorations that use nearby teeth for support. While covering an unattractive gap, the dental bridge allows teeth to recover fully their use.
Traditional fixed bridges are made of two parts: the central portion where the replacement tooth or teeth are located, the pontic, and the two abutments that are on each side of the gap the bridge must fill. Crowns will be fused to teeth serving as abutments, which will anchor the bridge firmly in place.
A traditional bridge presents many advantages for patients:
An aesthetically pleasing look that blends with natural teeth
Because it is cemented, the bridge is firmly held in place
Comfortable for patients
When well maintained, a bridge can last many years
