A Healthy Solution
Having gaps in your smile as a result of missing teeth can affect a patient’s overall confidence, as well as their overall health. While a bridge will provide an effective aesthetic solution, dental implants can provide an effective improvement to your oral health. With a traditional bridge, the restoration is anchored on each side of the gap by dental crowns. The crowns are typically applied over the tops of the surrounding healthy teeth by reshaping a portion of the enamel. Although this does help fill the gap and offers a minimally invasive technique that will drastically improve your smile, it will not prevent teeth from shifting or prevent bone atrophy.
