Dental Bridges at Sligo Dentist O'Connor Moore

Restoration of Missing Teeth

Dental bridges are used for the restoration of missing teeth. When teeth are lost a gap will appear, which if left untreated can lead to future problems such as eating difficulties and speech impediments.

This is because when the gap is left unfilled the teeth surrounding it are inclined to drift into the empty space, which can cause the problems mentioned above and also compromise the structure of your mouth.

Bridges fill these gaps by using the teeth on the opposing sides of the void to act as a stable anchor for a set of replacement teeth, which sit in the middle of the gap. Bridges can utilise different materials such as porcelain and metal, but it will be up to your dentist to recommend the best type of bridge for you.
