If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Kennedy, and Dr. Olzack may recommend you consider dental bridges. A dental bridge is a permanent dental restoration ideal for replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth that are missing in a row. There are many types of dental bridges in Waco, Texas, available to meet any of your individual dental needs:
- Traditional dental bridges – This is the most common type of dental bridge. A traditional bridge uses two dental crowns to anchor a false tooth, known as a pontic, in place. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on each side of the gap.
- Cantilever bridges – Cantilever bridges are similar in function to traditional dental bridges but are used when there are no natural teeth on one side of the gap.
- Resin-bonded bridges – Also known as Maryland bridges, resin-bonded bridges use metal clasps and bonding cement to hold your new tooth in place. Resin-bonded bridges are great for patients who are missing their front teeth.
