Permanent bridges are fixed, non-removable appliances that eliminate the need to remove partial dentures and function the same as the teeth that are being replaced. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. You can brush them, floss them and take care of them just like your natural teeth!
Reasons for a fixed bridge:
Restore your smile
Fill space of missing teeth
Maintain facial shape
Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
At Alafaya Family Dentistry, Dr. David Ross and Dr. Karen Schmitt help Oviedo patients avoid root canal infections, and they offer effective treatment when the condition does occur.
Our Oviedo dentists explain the differences between inlays and onlays, dental restorations that are used to replace lost tooth structure.
For patients in the Orlando area, the Alafaya Family Dentistry website is now the premier resource for learning more about cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry.
