Dental bridges are a great way to not only restore your smile, but make everyday activities, such as talking and eating, much easier. Read below to learn more and see if a dental bridge is the right solution for your smile.
The Dangers of Having a Missing Tooth
Your teeth work together with your jaw in an intricate system that affects your diet, your physical health, and the overall structure of your face. Even a single missing tooth can cause serious issues for your dental health as well as your physical health. Here are just some of the problems that can occur when a tooth is missing:
- Pain in jaw muscles and bones
- Pain in facial muscles
- Jaw bone begins to weaken/decay
- Gums pull away from teeth, exposing roots to bacteria and disease
- Face is unsupported and starts to sag, creating early appearance of aging
- Improper Bite
- Teeth tilt or collapse toward the empty socket.
- Make dental hygiene more difficult
- Spreading of infection or tooth decay to other teeth
- Teeth that are above or below may start to shift into the empty spot, creating more pain and issues for remaining teeth.
The Dental Bridge
A dental bridge replaces the missing tooth with a custom-made restoration that is carefully anchored to neighboring teeth for support.
These restorations look beautiful, feel comfortable and can last a long time. Plus, they are very easy to care for, just treat them like you do your natural teeth. Dental bridges are a wonderful option when a tooth or a couple of teeth are missing. Our patients love how natural their dental bridges look and feel; it’s like having a brand new smile.
They are happy and have the brightest smile
“I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was. I love the location, its very convenient to where I work so making it very easy to visit during my lunch hour. Just a great experience, would definitely recommend”
“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
“Couldn’t be happier! The staff are so friendly and personable; appointments are quick yet thorough. The best service I’ve ever received at a dentist office.”
“The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful!!! I did not hesitate to refer my family and friends.”
“Great dentist office in awesome location…staff is extremely nice, professional, and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a new dentist.”
