Fixed Bridges for Missing Teeth

If you have a missing tooth, a fixed bridge may be the best solution for you – it “bridges” the empty space between two healthy teeth. Inaction following the loss of teeth can result in the surrounding teeth drifting out of their positions and becoming more susceptible to decay and gum disease. With a fixed bridge, Dr. Blum will design a natural-looking ceramic tooth and fuse it between two crowns bonded to the healthy teeth next to the gap.

Before you decide on a fixed bridge, we suggest you also learn about dental implants. Dental implants are another kind of tooth replacement solution which restores your missing root structure, and does not require placing crowns on the adjacent teeth.
