Bridges

Replace missing teeth with expert bridgework

Having missing teeth can cause problems with speech and difficulty eating. Also, missing teeth can make it easier for bacteria to nest and cause infections and gum disease. Your existing teeth may shift in the jaw line causing overbites, underbites, and other problems with chewing.

If you have missing teeth, make an appointment with Medico M.D. and we can replace those teeth with professional bridge work.

How does a bridge work?

Much like creating a crown, we will take an impression of your bite and the area of the missing teeth. We will craft an artificial tooth that will anchor with your existing teeth. This forms a seamless bond with your existing teeth making it easier to chew and talk.

Is bridgework right for me?

The answer depends on how many teeth we need to be replaced. Typically, bridgework is perfect for people who are looking to replace one or two missing teeth. If you have more teeth than that missing, you may wish to explore options for a full or partial dentures to replace the teeth.
Bridgework tends to be less expensive than dental implants. It is also less invasive than implants as we are not needing to anchor the bridgework into the jaw.
