An estimated 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, reports the American College of Prosthodontics.

One of the most common treatments for missing teeth is called a dental bridge. Like the name implies, a dental bridge literally bridges the gap between two missing teeth, filling in the space. A special class of dentists called prosthodontists have received years of advanced training to create our La Mesa dental bridges and other dental prosthetics. Dr. Richard Feinberg is a prosthodontist who is considered the top dentist for providing dental bridges in the San Diego area.

Dental bridges involve creating a crown for the two teeth on either side of the gap made by the missing tooth or teeth. Then, false teeth are placed into the gap and anchored by the crowns.

The anchors for the dental bridge may be natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of the two. To decide what formation is best for you, Dr. Feinberg will carefully assess your dental health situation.

He will determine if the surrounding teeth have the structural integrity needed to serve as anchors for the bridge. Dr. Feinberg never relies on a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to dental bridges. Instead, he crafts a customized treatment plan that takes into account your unique dental needs.

When properly placed, a dental bridge looks nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth. False teeth may be made from alloys, porcelain, gold, or a mixture of these materials. The important part is that they must be durable enough to withstand normal wear and tear.

Getting the Best Dental Bridges La Mesa Can Offer

There are several benefits to getting a dental bridge, including:

  • The bridge will restore your smile. Patients often express embarrassment about their missing tooth or teeth. A dental bridge restores your natural-looking smile, allowing you to show off your new teeth.
  • Improved ability to speak or chew food. Missing teeth can be a pain, interrupting ability to speak clearly or chew food effectively. A bridge corrects these problems.
  • Prevents drift of remaining teeth. Without something in the gap formed by your missing tooth, surrounding teeth are prone to drifting into that space. Placing a dental bridge prevents this movement.
  • A dental bridge restores your normal bite. When you bite down, each tooth should ideally take an equal amount of force. A bridge ensures that this force is distributed equally among teeth.
