For patients with multiple missing teeth in a single area, fixed or removable bridges can be used to replace the missing teeth for a natural, healthy look. Bridges allow patients to eat and bite normally and can be made from porcelain to match the rest of your teeth.
Dental bridges are anchored to the existing teeth to form a “bridge” between the two. An impression will be taken to fabricate your bridge, and once it is ready, will be securely placed between the anchor teeth.
Removable bridges can be taken out to be cleaned, while only a dentist can remove fixed bridges. During your consultation with our dentist, Dr. Whipple, we will determine what method is best for you based on your specific needs and lifestyle.
