Dental Bridges

Bridges are an alternative to implants and are used to replace a missing tooth.  It is important to replace a missing tooth. Once a tooth is removed, the adjacent teeth start to shift causing periodontal (gum and bone) changes and the bone starts to disintegrate or dissolve once the root is gone.  The bite will also start to shift and the individual teeth may bear more force than they are used to.


Dr. Tarra Elliott and her team are trained and experienced in using dental implants to secure bridges. This can sometimes offer more options for prosthodontics. Learn about the use of dental implants to secure bridges here
