Bridges are used to fill the gaps between teeth that are often absent due to growth issues. They are used to improve aesthetic and chewing ability, as well as ensure the other teeth do not shift. During this process Dr. Ralhan will prepare the teeth and the space that will be filled with a crown, then he will create a bridge to place in the space needed. The bridge will be fixed between existing teeth, and will often be made from porcelain for a more natural look. However, they can also be made from silver amalgam or gold.
A candidate for a bridge is someone who is missing one or more teeth. Even if these teeth are clearly visible, it is important to still consult with Dr. Ralhan, as these gaps can lead to teeth misalignment, speech issues, and affected diet.
If you believe this procedure is right for you, contact Dr. Ralhan to learn more.
