If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can restore function and beauty to your smile. As the name implies, a dental bridge is used to bridge the gap between missing teeth, providing a strong foundation for restorations such as dental crowns and preventing issues such as adjacent tooth slippage.

To learn more about dental bridges and other tooth replacement options, please call Tulare dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at 559-478-2235 today to schedule an initial consultation.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are three primary types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional – Affixed to crowns placed over adjacent teeth on both sides of a gap
  • Cantilever – Used when only one tooth is adjacent to a gap
  • Maryland bonded – Plastic teeth and gums used for front teeth

Of these, Maryland bonded bridges offer the least reliable hold as they often require adhesives to stay in place. During your initial consultation with Dr. Miyake, your options will be discussed and the type of bridge best suited to meet your unique needs determined.

If you live in or around the Tulare area of California and would like to learn more about dental bridges and other tooth replacement options, please contact Gregory D. Miyake today to schedule an initial consultation.
