We do everything we can to save a tooth, but sometimes it is just not possible and it will need to be extracted. If this happens, we will discuss replacement of the missing tooth or teeth with you in detail. There are several options and one of them is to have a bridge placed.
A bridge is a permanent fixture and there are several types.
If you already have crowns in your mouth then a fixed bridge may be the best option. We will prepare teeth either side of your gap for crowns and then our dental technicians will construct a bridge that replaces these elements. We then cement this in place.
If the teeth either side of the gap have not ever had fillings or crowns, then we do not like to destroy this tooth tissue and prepare the teeth. Instead we choose Minimal Intervention Dentistry, MID, and will prepare a “sticky” bridge or a Maryland Bridge.
Dental implants can be an excellent alternative to dental bridges, find out more about implants here.
"Extremely professional and courteous. Jens kept me informed throughout the procedure and carried out the treatment with the least amount of discomfort to me. I am delighted with the outcome and cannot fault my visit."

"Jens put me at ease by taking time to talk me through each stage of the treatment process, it really helped. Jens and Tricia seemed to work together really efficiently, I felt safe in their care and their friendly manner was appreciated."
