Candidates for dental bridges

If you have missing teeth and have good oral hygiene practices, you should discuss this dental procedure with your dentist. It is a good teeth replacement option for those with missing teeth, and with teeth on either side of this tooth gap (or teeth gap) that are slightly broken or crooked. If the teeth on either side of your teeth gap are in good shape, a dental bridge may not be for you (you'll probably be better off with a dental implant), because the process of getting a dental bridge requires some paring back of the enamel on the surrounding teeth, and adding dental crowns to them. 

Keep in mind that if you have missing teeth, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position. This is due to the structural stress placed on the surrounding teeth. A dental bridge not only fixes your tooth gap, but also adds structural strength to your surrounding teeth. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.
