How Do Fixed Dental Bridges Work?
A fixed dental bridge is a bridge that is placed by reducing the adjacent teeth, taking an impression, making a metal framework, and then firing porcelain to the surface to make the porcelain tooth-colored. Fixed dental bridges are then cemented in the mouth and cannot be removed by the patient.
A fixed dental bridge can replace several missing teeth or gaps in your smile. Since it is fixed, it is a long-lasting way to replace your teeth and is secure, stable and comfortable since there are no loose parts. This allows you to have improved function, self-esteem, and speech.
With a fixed bridge, you can eat that steak you have been missing out on, or the corn-on-the-cob you love so much without worrying about your teeth falling out.
