Dental Bridges in Edmonton
Uptown Dental Centre
To place a bridge, your dentist will first secure crowns to the teeth on either side of a gap before anchoring the pontic or pontics (the bridge) to fill the space. When using dental implants to anchor a bridge, the implants would first need to be completed and then a bridge installed. Dental implants mimic the entire structure of missing teeth, including the roots, making them a strong and stable method of securing bridges. Bridges have significant aesthetic and practical benefits for patients with more than one missing tooth. Having a bridge placed in those gaps can restore dental functionality and with today’s modern materials, bridges are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
