To ensure your smile can function properly, it is important to make sure that you always have a full set of healthy teeth. If for any reason you lose a tooth or have a tooth scheduled for extraction, it is important to start thinking about the use of a tooth replacement. If a missing tooth is not replaced, your dental profile can sink in, plaque and bacteria can build up in the void left behind, and your teeth can begin to slide and move around. To combat this, consider the use of a cosmetic dentistry procedure such as a dental bridge.
Dental bridges are not only designed to improve the look of your smile, but they can also add additional support for your teeth and gums. Dental bridges will complete your smile and improve any issues that may have been affected due to lost or missing teeth, including those associated with chewing, eating or speaking properly. If you have any issues with bite stability, dental bridges can often reverse it and make sure that the bite distribution forces across your mouth are corrected. Furthermore, issues associated with tooth slippage and space maintenance can often be reversed and modified as well.
