Fixed Bridges (Fixed Partial Dentures) in La Mesa

If teeth are missing due to accident, injury, or gum disease, Dr. Johnson can create a fixed bridge to restore your complete smile and missing oral function. This prosthesis esthetically fills the space, and it prevents repositioning of the remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, as well as provide internal structure for the face to give you a more satisfactory appearance.

A fixed bridge is a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that attaches on both sides to teeth restored with dental crowns. If strong adjacent teeth aren't available, a dental implant may offer a healthier alternative. For a bridge that replaces many teeth, a removable partial denture or implant-supported prosthesis may be recommended.
