Q.

Swiching to a Bridge


I've had my front 4 upper teeth extracted wnd I now have a metal plate in, with which I'm not entirely satisfied with.

I intend to get a bridge to fill the gap. What are the disadvantages to having a bridge and what would the costs approximately be??

if your teeth/gums are healthy there are no real disadvantages to a bridge. costs will depend on the number of adjacent teeth that are needed to support the bridge but will be at least a bout R14 000 upwards
