Why is a Bridge Placed

 

1. It prevents over-eruption of the opposing teeth,

2. It prevents periodontitis dt food traps

3. It ensures a stable occlusion

4. It prevents drifting and tilting of teeth

5. It improves aesthetics, especially in the front of the mouth.

     

THE REPLACEMENT OF MISSING TEETH THUS HAS MANY ADVANTAGES:

 · The natural occlusion is restored and maintained

· Undue stress on other teeth is prevented

· Drifting and tilting of adjacent teeth are prevented

· Protection is provided against caries and periodontitis

· Smiling, speech and chewing functions are optimized.
