A bridge is one of several options for filling the space created by a missing tooth. This is a serious matter. Teeth are made to work together, so when one is missing nearby teeth may drift or tilt into the empty space. This can cause shifts in the bite, cause pain, and put more stress on jaw joints. When teeth are missing, the jawbone could lose mass changing the way the jawbone supports the lips and cheeks. Overtime, this absence of support will make your face look older.
Bridges can come in several formats. Dr. Regan and his staff will recommend the best course of treatment for you if you are in this situation.
