Fixed Partial Dentures (FPD)

This procedure, commonly referred to as a “bridge,” is a way to replace a missing tooth with a fixed prosthesis. During this procedure the teeth on both sides of the area where the tooth is missing are prepared for a crown. The two crowns have a crown attached to them to replace the missing tooth. This is a very good method for replacing a single or multiple teeth that are close together with a prosthesis that does not come in and out of the mouth. 

Bridges are used to prevent: 

  • Shifting of the teeth that can lead to bite (occlusion) problems
  • Shifting of teeth that can lead to TMJ problems
  • Shifting of teeth that can result in periodontal problems
  • Problems with mastication or chewing
