Dental Bridges in Houston, TX
If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, no worries we have a solution.
Dr. Amir Elsakr in Houston, TX may recommend a dental bridge for you. A missing teeth can only be perfectly done by filling the space created by the missing teeth, that’s why using a bridge is recommended.
A bridge is one or more artificial teeth cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support. This is the best option for filling the space created by a missing tooth.
A bridge replaces a missing tooth both functionally and cosmetically. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and aesthetics.
A missing tooth shouldn’t be empty for so long to avoid the gap between the teeth shifting inward.
Since teeth use their neighbors for support, if one is missing they begin to “fall” and shift into the open spaces. This may worsen the bite because of the changes in pressure, and it can eventually result in problems with the jaw, such as a TMJ disorder.
