Do you know what a dental bridge is? A dental bridge is a wonderful tooth replacement procedure that replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth that bridge the gap left behind to give you a permanent lasting hold that is sure to please. Dental bridges are customized to the look, shape, and color desired for the gap, upon which they are inserted and held in place by directly attaching to nearby teeth or implants.
If you have any missing teeth, it is possible that the gums will loosen around the area and cause other teeth to slide or move as well. This can be fixed by inserting a tooth replacement such as a dental bridge directly into the gap. Not only will the bridge prevent other teeth from moving around, but it can also restore your eating and speaking habits to a much more functional level.
The appearance of your smile can also be improved with dental bridges. Missing teeth often cause self-esteem issues due to the social stigma associated with it. In addition, missing teeth will make your face look older due to the sunken in look of your jaw. Fill out your smile with a dental bridge to return your facial structure to normal.
Make sure to take good care of your dental bridge, as it could potentially last a lifetime.
