If for any reason you have any lost or missing teeth, it can lead to a severe downward spiral in your oral health. Not only can it make your face appear more aged and give a sunken in look to your jawbone, but missing teeth can also even increase your risk for tooth decay by allowing additional resources for plaque buildup to linger. Missing teeth can even lead to tooth slippage and gum destabilization. To alleviate issues associated with missing teeth, tooth prosthetics such as dental bridges should be used.
Once a dental bridge is placed in your mouth, it can help restore functions that may have been lost due to missing teeth. This can include hindrances and impairments associated with eating and speaking skills as well as downturns in bite stability. Dental bridges can even improve the look of your smile as they are tooth-colored in appearance and can be crafted for each individual patient.
Dental bridges are highly reliable and durable because they are anchored directly onto nearby teeth. A single dental bridge can actively last up to a lifetime of support if it is taken care of correctly. In many situations, dental bridges can restore your smile.
