Several consecutive missing teeth can affect the function of your bite.
A dental bridge can restore that function, allowing you to eat and speak properly once more.
Dr. Patrick Tanner in South Ogden, UT, can help craft a custom bridge to give you a beautiful and functional smile.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge helps fill in the gap caused by one or more missing teeth. The bridge attaches to two abutment teeth, which will be given crowns, or to two dental implants with crown restorations. The artificial tooth or teeth that fill in the gap are called pontics.

Dental implants provide amazing jawbone health benefits. When you are missing a tooth, the jawbone loses the stimulation the tooth root once provided and begins to deteriorate. Implants return that stimulation, stopping and preventing bone atrophy.
For dental bridges, implants paired with dental crowns act as the anchoring tooth for the pontic. This is often a great option for patients with more than one missing tooth. However, if you have several missing teeth, traditional or implant-supported dentures may be a better option. Our South Ogden dental practice offers a range of restorative dentistry options such as dentures to fit your unique dental needs.
