The benefits of dental bridges to replace missing teeth

At Las Cruces Dental Associates, PC, our team of experienced dentists offers a wide range of tooth replacement solutions to help patients restore their smiles when faced with issues. Whether a tooth has been manually removed or lost due to disease or decay, we are here to guide you in choosing the most suitable replacement option tailored to your unique needs. Many of our patients find great value in the cost-effective restoration benefits of treatments such as dental bridges, designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth for a complete and functional smile.

What is a dental bridge?

The dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic dental device designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. It consists of two or more crowns on either side of the space where the missing tooth/teeth used to be, with an artificial tooth, or even multiple teeth, in between them. These crowns are then placed over the adjacent healthy teeth on each side, and the artificial teeth are used to fill in the gap. This creates a seamless restoration that looks and functions like natural teeth.

What are the different types of dental bridges?

At Las Cruces Dental Associates, PC, we have several types of dental bridges available for our patients, each with its own unique benefits. These include traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland-bonded bridges, and implant-supported bridges. Our experienced dental team works closely with you to determine which restoration is best to replace missing teeth in your smile. Dental bridges can be used for adults and teenagers when tooth loss or extraction has occurred and provide a more fixed solution when compared to removable partial dentures.
