REPLACE YOUR MISSING TOOTH

Bridges offer a non-surgical alternative to dental implants. The difference is that implants are anchored to the bone, while bridges attach one or more crowns to the adjacent teeth. The result is a natural, healthy appearance—without the surgery.
Implants may not be possible for some patients. Bones must be dense enough to support a dental implant. In cases where the bones are not dense enough, bridges or dentures may be the only options. While some patients prefer dentures, they can be cumbersome at times and require more hands-on maintenance. Bridges, while requiring care and cleaning, stay in the mouth and are attached to the teeth. They’re more of a “set-it and forget it” tooth replacement option.

CARE FOR DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES
For proper care of dental bridges, it is recommended to brush and floss twice a day. Flossing removes any plaque from under the false teeth. No other special care is needed apart from the daily oral hygiene and regular Preventative care dental visits at South Main Dental
