Preparing for a Dental Bridge? Here's what you need to know!

A bridge may be recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum diseases. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near t La Marque, Galveston and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB and ROSS market complex. has the best Orthodontics available near you.

Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. Your dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations, and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

  • Fill space of missing teeth.
