Bridges are dental prosthetics attached to your remaining teeth. A bridge will have to be replaced eventually and involves shaving down the two opposing teeth. If your opposing teeth are completely uncompromised, this may be too drastic an option.
At Bradford Family Dentistry, we recommend implants. An implant acts as and literally replaces the root of your tooth. Implants do not involve loss of bone, and they last a long time—considerably longer than bridgework, although your crown may need replacing at some point.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact my office. Our friendly staff would love to help.
