Dr. Suadi understands that missing teeth can make chewing and speaking difficult, so they provide a dental bridge in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This restoration bridges the gaps in your smile by fastening to the teeth adjacent to an empty space, allowing it to stay securely in your mouth. To learn more about how our dentists can replace missing teeth, call BR Dental Care today.
A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace a missing tooth (or missing teeth). A bridge can be used to accomplish the following:
- Fill gaps left by missing teeth
- Prevent the shifting of teeth due to extra space
- Restore a fully functioning bite
- Retain your face’s natural shape
- Replace a partial denture
- Promote a natural, radiant smile
Bridges comprise of two crowns that go over the teeth adjacent to the gap. We call these abutment teeth. Between the crowns, we place an artificial tooth, known as a pontic. This tooth will look and function like a natural tooth. Best of all, when you smile, no one will know you have a dental appliance! Please call us to schedule an appointment if you are interested in receiving a bridge treatment.
