Dental Bridges: When They are Best
Dental bridges are
best used when a person has problems with a number of
teeth next to each other. For example, there are three
or four teeth lined up next to each other that have
deteriorated because of accident, injury or disease.
The best course is the removal of these teeth.

Dental bridges is
treatment with a name that really does correctly identify
the process and result. “False teeth” are placed into
the mouth -- bridging the gap from natural tooth to
natural tooth. In some instances, there are dental bridges
that are referred to as partial dentures. However, in
reality, partial dentures really apply to a treatment
option in which “false teeth” contained in a “plate”
are placed in the top or bottom of a person’s mouth
-- rather than a full set of dentures which includes
the top and bottom bites. Dental bridges rely on the
presence of natural teeth to serve as an anchor.
