Tooth Bridges in Northeast Dallas
Missing teeth cause a variety of problems: impaired ability to chew and speak clearly, loss of cheek and lip support, and unbalanced bite, to name a few. We offer several ways at Skillman Family Dentistry to replace missing teeth, including a fixed bridge.
A fixed bridge consists of a false tooth, called a pontic, that Dr. Henry permanently bonds to the teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. This false tooth restores your ability to chew, bite, and speak. Bridges are not removable; they do not move and will not slip while eating or speaking. You can laugh and chew with confidence.
Replacing missing teeth helps keep your remaining teeth from drifting into the gap and becoming crooked. If you are missing one or more teeth, a fixed bridge might address all your concerns. Call us at (469) 998-9822 today to see if a dental bridge is right for your case.
