    bridges

    Bridges are used for filling the space created by a missing tooth. A Bridge is 
    formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The 
    sides of a bridge use the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name.   

     A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically.  
    The materials used may be porcelain bonded to metal alloy or all ceramic 
    material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, 
    and aesthetics. Dr. Tibbs will work patients to decide which material works best
    for each individual case.

    It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for several 
    reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward. 
    Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they can start to 
    fall.  As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can 
    eventually result in problems with the entire jaw, including 
    TMJ disorder. The 
    surrounding teeth can begin to deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before 
    they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty 
    of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
