Dental Bridges

The false tooth is known as a pontic and is fused in between two crowns that serve as anchors by attaching to the teeth on each side of the false tooth and thereby bridging them together.

The replacement of missing teeth is important for the following reasons:

  • to improve appearance
  • to reduce strain on the teeth at either side of the missing tooth/teeth
  • to prevent the neighbouring teeth from leaning into the resulting gap and altering the bite
  • to prevent gum disease and tooth decay due to accumulation of food in the gap

Dental Bridges can last on average 8 to 12 years provided that you maintain good oral hygiene and eating habits.
