Feedback or cons/ bros on using all solid zirconium to support the length/span of 4 unit bridge covering teeth 11to14. Prevosiue porc bridge broken?

Dental Bridge: The bridge is cemented in place, and is made of more natural looking porcelain. The partial has hooks and wires which are needed to attach to your other teeth to keep the partial in place. Furthermore, the partial is a plaque trap and can be difficult to eat and speak with.

Overloading the bite and insufficient tooth to support this are most common causes. See a Prosthodontist for opinion. Consider 2 implants #12,13. Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
