Porcelain Bridges at Cincinnati, OH
You’re supported by the same mechanisms that sustain a dental bridge whenever you drive across one. Abutments are crowned teeth on either side of a gap. They are used to support a pontic, which is an artificial tooth. While a bridge can survive for many years, the strain of holding one or more missing teeth can damage the abutments, potentially leading to future tooth loss.
A Better Bridge
In many circumstances, dental implants are a superior option to standard bridge abutments because they eliminate most of the load-bearing strain. An implant, when precisely placed in the bone, resembles the root of a tooth. They take on the load that natural teeth used to carry, allowing nearby teeth to be spared from severe stresses. A bridge may be constructed using two implants in specific situations.
