Replace Missing Teeth With Fixed Bridges

March 29, 2013

You can lose your teeth for a variety of reasons. No matter whether the cause was an accident, injury, gum disease, or aging, there is help. At Michel Dental, we offer fixed bridges to help replace your missing teeth and maintain the health of the rest of your teeth.

It is important to replace missing teeth to restore function to your smile, correct your bite, and prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting to fill the gap. Since everyone has different smile needs, we offer a variety of bridge solutions to be able to help all of our patients.

A bridge is composed of the false teeth used to replace your missing teeth. The method used will depend on the health of your remaining teeth and the location of the missing teeth in your smile. Your bridge could be placed by using crowns on healthy neighboring teeth to anchor it in your smile. If the neighboring teeth aren’t healthy enough to support this, we can use dental implants and insert a metal post into your jaw to attach the bridge.

It is important to make sure you take care of your fixed bridge as you would your other natural teeth. With the proper care and attention, it may last about eight to ten years. Fixed bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
