If you’re missing any teeth – even a single tooth – it’s very important that you choose a method to replace them. If you don’t, other remaining teeth may shift in an attempt to fill in the gap left behind by the missing teeth, and that can lead to discomfort, difficulty chewing, and other issues. For many patients, dental bridges are an excellent way to replace one or more missing teeth. Dr. Klingsporn is pleased to offer dental bridges as one of the many services he provides for his patients from throughout the Austin, TX area.

Important Information about Dental Bridges
When you’re missing one or more teeth and your remaining teeth shift in place to fill in the gap, it can lead to a variety of problems. Not only can you experience difficulty in chewing food, but over a certain period of time you can actually experience problems with your jaw. In fact, if you don’t replace missing teeth, it can literally change the shape of your face over time. For all these reasons and more, it’s so important to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are a popular choice of many patients and dentists for good reason.
A bridge is made up of a metal frame that holds one or more porcelain crowns. The frame sits securely over the existing natural teeth on either side of the gap where the patient is missing teeth. Patients have the choice between a removable bridge and one that is “fixed” or not removable. These appliances are quite strong and normally last for several years.
