A dental bridge may be a good option when there are gaps in the teeth due to an extracted tooth. The bridge is placed on either side of two teeth to close or bridge this space.
There is not surgery required for bridges and they are a faster alternative to an implant. Bridges help properly chew food, speak and ensure proper jaw alignment. Bridges also help prevent other teeth in the mouth from moving or drifting apart and may last many years when cared for properly.
