What are the reasons for a dental bridge?
A patient might need missing teeth replaced for a variety of reasons. There are 3 main reasons to replace missing teeth below:
- Migration: Typically if there is an open area in the mouth surrounding teeth can migrate into that area. Many problems can arise from teeth moving and floating around. In really bad cases additional tooth loss can be a result.
- Function: Every tooth, as well as the location of each tooth, has a unique function. Certain areas of your mouth can not function properly if there are teeth missing. Other teeth now have to be re-adjusted for added work that they were not designed to take on. The added stress to the surrounding teeth can lead to issues where dental treatment is needed to prevent additional problems or tooth loss.
- Appearance: This is the most obvious reason patients' think of. The state of the art techniques and materials we use results in a very natural look.
Usually, bridges are secured by existing teeth on both sides of the gap. However, if there are no existing teeth to attach the bridge then it can be attached to dental implants that are surgically implanted into your jaw.

Haven't been to the dentist in about five years and finally made an appointment to go in. Went to see Dr. Fenton and right from the start, the staff was very friendly and that made me feel welcomed. Dr. Fenton is great very easy on the touch and made a lot of my dental fears go away. I'm very glad I found this office and would recommend anyone to go see them.
