Bridges

Missing teeth can be a distressing problem, but at Wayside Dental Practice we have a range of tooth replacement treatments to restore both the beauty and the functionality of your smile.

There are many reasons why it’s important to replace missing teeth. Not only will treatment improve smile aesthetics, it will also benefit your oral health. When a tooth is missing, the teeth on either side may begin to lean into the space left behind, affecting your bite. This can lead to food getting trapped in the gap, potentially causing tooth decay and gum disease.

What is a bridge?

A bridge is essentially two crowns joined together, with a false tooth in the middle. This is bonded to the teeth sitting on either side of the gap, enabling the false tooth to replace the missing tooth.

The bridge fitting procedure is simple, and the results should last for 10-15 years.

What are the alternatives?

At Wayside Dental Practice, we also use crowns and dental implants to replace missing teeth. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the various tooth replacement methods before helping you decide on the perfect treatment plan.
