Tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons including gum disease, extensive decay or accidental fracture.
The first choice to replace a tooth is to use a dental bridge implants to support the existing bone and soft tissue structures.
If a dental implant can not be used then a dental bridge is an excellent alternative. It utilises teeth either side of the gap to allow the dental technician to make crowns that carry a false tooth. The bridge is then cemented in place and is not removable
15 Years is not an unreasonable time span to expect from dental bridges and with modern techniques the dental bridges are almost identical to natural teeth.
Dental Bridges are available from 1200 Euros
