Bridges

If a person is missing a tooth, an option to replace it involves making a bridge.  This involves crowning the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.  The bridge slides over the prepared teeth and is cemented in place.  A bridge is typically recommended if a patient is not willing to go through surgery for an implant, the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth have large fillings and/or crowns already, or a time constraint.  For a bridge to be made it takes two appointments and the patient wears a temporary while the lab makes the bridge. Extra care is needed to floss up and under a bridge because the floss will not slide in between the teeth.  Please call 843-762-1234 and let Dr. Thomas or Dr. Weir discuss which option is best to replace your missing tooth.
