You may only have one missing tooth, and if does not impact your appearance, you may have decided to live it. As time goes on, however, you may begin experiencing problems with your dental alignment and basic oral functions. In addition to a traditional bridge, our dentist can provide you with the following types of dental bridges in Charlottesville, Virginia:
- Cantilever bridges are used to fill in a space in which natural teeth are only present on one side of the gap. The prosthetic tooth is held in place with a single crown.
- Implant-supported bridges are attached to dental implants. They are extremely stable and comfortable and can improve your appearance, function and even the health of your jawbone.
- Maryland bridges attach to the backs of the adjacent teeth with a metal frame. This type of bridge is a more conservative treatment and does not require a crown to hold it in place and no enamel needs to be removed from the teeth that support the bridge.
If you would like to meet with Dr. Nicholas Bottorff to see which bridge would fit your smile the best, call our Elevated Dentistry at 434-202-3938 today.
