A fixed bridge replaces a single tooth that has been lost due to decay or trauma. This restoration involves placing crowns on the adjoining teeth that anchor a replacement tooth, custom manufactured to perfectly match your other teeth.
The anchor crowns are cemented in place, and the new tooth now fills the gap, and appears natural. These are very strong restorations made from very tough materials so they can withstand the force of chewing.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
