What are Dental Bridges?

Dental Bridges are the use of a false tooth called pontics that are made of either gold, alloy, porcelain, or a combination of these material anchored to two or more crowns on the side of it. Dental bridges are typically supported by natural teeth, but can be supported by dental implants in some cases. Dental bridges provide a cheaper and less invasive way to fill in the space caused from missing teeth.

Dental Bridges vs Dental Implants

Dental implants are stronger, longer lasting, and offer better support for your jaw. However, dental bridges don’t require surgery and the recovery time is far less. once your procedure is over and your teeth are fixed you can be done and move on. You’ll just need to replace them more often. At Pickett Family Dental we always recommend the best option, which is dental implants, but we understand why some might choose a dental bridge instead.
