Tooth Replacement Mokena
When do you recommend dental bridges to replace missing teeth?
In today's day and age of implants, dental bridges are still a great way to replace teeth. As long as the teeth on either side of the space are good candidates for crowns. Badly broken down, big fillings in them and are going to get crowned anyway, it is sometimes more economical to put two crowns with a fake tooth hung in between them, which is what a bridge is. And that's a great way to restore the space and give the two adjust crowns the covers that they need. That being said, if money is not an issue, just the premiere restoration would be a crown, an implant with a crown and another crown. For the simple fact that you are not linking two teeth together and it doesn't matter if you lose one than you lose the whole bridge down the road, whereas if you keep all those independent then you're treating three separate entities and there is a better chance of being a lifetime restoration.
