Do Riverton Pediatric Dentists Suggest Dental Bridges?

Most of the time children do not need dental bridges. If children are still losing primary or “baby” teeth, there is almost never a need for a traditional dental bridge. If a child loses a baby tooth and a long span of time would pass before an adult tooth would grow to replace it, professionals will most likely recommend a spacer to be worn until the adult tooth grows in on its own. 

If you are concerned about one of your child’s teeth that hasn’t grown in yet, give us a call.

Bridges are More Common in Adulthood

At Johnson Pediatric we make certain your child’s health is put first which is why if we do recommend a dental bridge it is for good reason. Most likely if a dental bridge is recommended it would be for an older child who has already grown in most of their adult teeth.

If you have any questions or concerns call today!

How does a Dental

Bridge Work?

  • Used to fill the gap created by a missing tooth
  • The surrounding teeth act as anchors to the false tooth
  • The false tooth is placed and secured to the natural teeth surrounding the gap
  • The bridge is designed to function like a normal tooth
  • After a bridge is placed be certain to maintain dental cleaning habits so is stays strong and healthy
