What is a bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration that can be utilized to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are designed to be natural looking, allowing you to aesthetically restore the health and function of your smile. A traditional dental bridge consists of one to three artificial teeth and two dental crowns. The crowns are attached to the teeth or implants next to the gap to support the prosthetic replacement teeth. Traditional dental bridges are fixed (non-removable) dental appliances, so they are very stable and secure.
What is a hugger bridge?
A hugger bridge is a good choice for patients who do not want a fixed traditional bridge, a partial denture, or a dental implant. Hugger bridges are a pain-free solution that can restore the natural look and function of your smile. Dr. Nadia Hamouda may also recommend a hugger dental bridge in Ann Arbor, Michigan, if you have a dental implant that needs protection during the osseointegration process.
Do I need a bridge?
Our friendly dentist may recommend a bridge if you are missing one tooth or a few teeth a row. A dental bridge can restore the natural contour of your teeth, improve your ability to speak and eat as normal, and preserve the proper bite relationship between the upper and lower teeth.
