A commonsense alternative to dentures or dental implants, a dental bridge is used just to “bridge” a gap in your mouth where one or more teeth are missing.
Emergency Dental Care in Portland, OR can create a custom dental bridge to hold artificial teeth in a place where needed. These will help you maintain a smile that looks great and functions properly. We will attach your bridge at either side to crowns, permanent teeth, or attached using dental implants.
In the short term, a dental bridge will give you back the function of your natural teeth. This will help prevent chewing or bite problems. They can also help resolve pain in the tooth or jaw as well as the embarrassing gap in your teeth. In the long term, a dental bridge provides even more great benefits to the look and health of your mouth. In addition, the bridge keeps the rest of your teeth from shifting into a gap where a tooth is missing.
