Albuquerque Dental Bridges

If you are missing teeth, it is important to address the matter as soon as possible. Failure to replace missing teeth may affect your speech, cause gum infections and create problems with your bite that may eventually develop into the painful temporal-mandibular joint disorder (TMJ).



Dental bridges, like implants and partial dentures, are one way to replace missing teeth; they are custom-made porcelain tooth replicas designed to fill the space left by your missing tooth. The reason they’re called bridges is because of the way they are situated in your mouth. When placing a dental bridge, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are used as anchors for the replacement tooth. Often times, this requires the two anchor teeth to receive crowns for proper fitting of a bridge.



Not all patients are good candidates for a dental bridge. For this reason, we provide patients with a thorough evaluation so we can determine the best method to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
