Dental Bridge for Missing Teeth

Dental BridgeDental Bridge Treatment in San Francisco

Beautiful restorations for damaged, decayed, or missing teeth.

A dental bridge is a replacement for one or more missing or badly decayed teeth. Sometimes also called a fixed partial, a bridge is an affordable option that also provides excellent strength and durability. Typically, a bridge consists of replacement teeth anchored with porcelain crowns on either side (called abutment teeth).

After you’ve received a bridge it’s important to take extra care when brushing in order to keep food debris and plaque from accumulating. Also, since the bridge is connected together as a single unit, we recommend floss threaders to clean between teeth. You may also want to consider using a water flosser for improved oral hygiene.

With proper at-home care and regular checkups, there’s no reason your dental bridge can’t last 10 years or more! Call us at (415) 433-9032 to schedule a consultation, and we’ll be happy to discuss your treatment options for missing teeth.
