When a tooth, or teeth, are missing it is often best to have it replaced. A missing tooth can lead to structural changes, a change of bite, as well as decreased function, speech, and esthetics.
Bridges are one option to replace missing teeth. The teeth adjacent to the missing teeth are the anchors to bridge across the space. It is like multiple crowns connected to each other to span the gap.
The existing teeth are contoured to provide a base for the bridge. An impression or digital scan is taken of these prepared teeth and the space between them. From this data the bridgework is created to restore the area.
