A dental bridge, or fixed bridge, is a restorative dental option that replaces one or more missing teeth. A fixed bridge is comprised of an “anchor” on each side of the area missing teeth. These anchors hold a “bridge” of artificial teeth in place. Anchors are crowns that can either be placed over existing teeth or over implants. We offer fixed bridges at our Calgary clinic.
Implants for fixed bridges are usually placed in a single session. In certain cases, implants may need between a one to two months to integrate fully with the jaw bone. Bridges are permanent and cannot be removed. Bridges can help you to smile more confidently and they can also improve your ability to chew and speak comfortably. They also help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of position.
