When you lose one tooth or more, Dr. Grabeman can evaluate and recommend your best options from among several. A bridge consists of one tooth (or more) made out of the same material as a crown, which is then cemented to the teeth adjacent to the space. It looks and feels like your own tooth. Our technique, use of ovate pontic, creates the illusion by electrosurgical sculpting that the tooth actually comes from the gum. Bridges are especially appropriate in cases where the teeth adjoining the space are heavily filled and require crowns or where there is not enough bone to support an implant.
