Bridges are a dental treatment used to replace one or more missing teeth, by spanning the space where the teeth are missing. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into these spaces, resulting in a malformed bite and eventually, periodontal disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
The solution is to cement the bridge to the natural teeth or implants that surround the gap. These are called abutments and serve as anchors for the bridge. Replacement teeth, called pontics, are attached to the crowns covering the abutments. As with crowns and other dental replacements, there is a choice of materials that can be used for bridges, allowing for a natural and normal-looking smile.

Dr. grason was great. she was very quick and very thorough. I’ve had bad experiences with other dentists over-diagnosing and she only recommended what was necessary. 😉

Wait time was short. Staff was super friendly and very good at keeping things not-awkward, which is always a worry. Dr. Grason was great. Down-to-earth doctor, but seemed super capable.

Dr.Margaux was great. She was very professional and took the time to not only explain but show me through photos and x-rays what I needed to get done. She was extremely pleasant and I plan on returning to her for my next appointment.

I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and was a bit nervous. Dr. Margaux couldn’t have been nicer and I felt really at ease. The hygienists were really great, too. Definitely recommend.
