Missing teeth can inhibit your ability to chew and speak well, which is why our dentists restore them with a dental bridge. This restoration stays securely in place by using the teeth neighboring the gap as an anchor, allowing your bite to have normal function. Contact Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Ferguson today if you would like to receive a dental bridge in Concord, North Carolina.
When one or more teeth are missing, there are a variety of treatments available to replace the missing teeth and restore your smile. One treatment option that Ferguson and Associates DDS offers is the dental bridge. Dental bridges are non-removable (permanent) appliances that can:
- Fill the spaces left by missing teeth
- Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Restore your ability to chew and speak normally
- Replace an ineffective or unwanted partial denture
- Give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile
To create your bridge, our dentist will place crowns on the two teeth (abutment teeth) immediately adjacent to the gap. An artificial tooth, or pontic, is placed between the crowns for optimal functional and aesthetic results. When in place, no one will be able to tell that you are wearing a bridge!
Bridges can restore your confidence as well as your smile. Please call Ferguson and Associates DDS today to learn more about dental bridges and your other options for replacing missing teeth.
