Tooth Replacement Procedures In Downtown Ottawa
For dental patients missing several adjoining teeth, one very common treatment option is a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a permanent restorative dentistry treatment that involves the attachment of one or more prosthetic teeth to the adjacent natural teeth. These “fake teeth” not only fill in the space that the missing teeth have created, but they also keep the surrounding natural teeth from shifting out of place over time.
This dental treatment also has a variation that offers a more fixed solution by securing the dental bridge with several dental implants (rather than the prosthetic teeth), which are secured to the underlying jawbone for stability, stimulation, and ultimately, bone regrowth. The main advantage of fixed dental bridges over its removable counterpart is its superior functionality (i.e. increased support and stability) in terms of acting and feeling like natural teeth.
