People can lose teeth for any variety of reasons- age, disease, accidents or even genetics can be to blame for tooth loss. When our patients suffer from one or more missing teeth, we offer dental bridges in Omaha, Nebraska to restore their smile. This procedure helps maintain the proper alignment of surrounding teeth, helps regain the strength of your bite and even improves your facial shape.
This procedure does exactly what its name suggests: it “bridges” the gap made by a missing tooth or teeth. The device relies on healthy, surrounding teeth as anchors. The two surrounding teeth are filed down and prepared for a crown. Then, Dr. McCaslin will place a connected row of prosthetic teeth over the two surrounding teeth, which also provides an artificial tooth that fits perfectly between them.
