A Bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on
one side of the mouth. Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base.
You should replace missing teeth for a number of reasons. Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth at either side.
A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

I have been a patient here for 10 years and regretfully leaving due to relocation across the border to Suffolk. During this time I have received excellent treatment from the dentist, their assistant, reception staff and the hygenist and their assistant. I have had some major dental work undertaken and given that I was cautious of dentists given previous experience, I can't recommend Friends Dental practice enough. I have recommended the practice to others on many occasions. Whilst I am pleased to be relocating to Suffolk, I am sad to be losing such a good dentist! But hey, if I can't find another good dentist then I will be back every six months!

I had to have a lot of work done to my teeth, as 39 years since I last visited a dentist. Everyone were so kind and helpful. I now have a good smile again and eating is so much better . Brilliant service in every respect, thank you so much.
Very welcoming friendly & pleasant staff on arrival & check in at reception. The Dentist & assistant were very welcoming in the surgery and worked well together. Explained everything to me, & my options & prices of treatment. Didn't feel pressured at all, as I have previously been elsewhere. Treatment I received was faultless, both in the surgery & at reception & everything completed smoothly & confidently. Highly recommended & very pleased I changed practice.
Always had a phobia of the dentist since school. But have been going to
Friends dental for 4 years and always see the same smiling dentist. Not like a previous dentists when there was a different dentist every 6 months.
Now I walk into the surgery with confidence and I even get a free sample of toothpaste for being a good boy!
