If you have a missing tooth, a bridge may be an option to fill the space. A bridge is “fixed”, meaning that it is cemented and stays in the mouth (unlike removable partial dentures that are taken out of the mouth). Drs. Cope create a bridge by fitting the teeth on either side of the missing tooth space with crowns. A false tooth is permanently-attached to the crowns. Together, the two crowns support the floating false tooth and act as one chewing unit. In addition to helping you chew better, bridges are esthetic, and prevent teeth from tilting or moving into the missing space. If you have any questions about bridges or the pros and cons of the various ways to replace teeth, call/email Cope Dentistry. Dr.’s Cope are happy to answer questions and even have a few sample bridges at the office they could show you in person.
