Dental Bridge Ypsilanti, MI
If you are missing one or more teeth, you should consider receiving a dental bridge as a solution. A dental bridge is a restoration that helps fill in the gap between existing teeth and missing teeth. Dental bridges are typically supported by existing teeth, but sometimes we will use dental implants (small titanium screws), as the support component. There are several types of bridges to consider, and the procedures for most, are fairly simple.
Types of Bridges
There are four types of bridges:
Regardless of which bridge you receive, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene and take the necessary steps to protect your bridge. Make sure to use specialized hygiene tools if needed and your bridge can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, sometimes even longer.

Leaving the area of an extracted or missing tooth unrestored can cause serious damage. Your surrounding teeth will begin to compensate for the gap, affecting your bite and smile. You may also see bone deterioration in the jaw near the area in question, jeopardizing your chances of receiving future dental implants.
