Missing teeth can be more than just an inconvenience. Without restorative dentistry, they can cause you to feel self-conscious and they affect your overall appearance. Some people stop smiling completely because of missing teeth. This does not have to be the case when you call Smile Avenue Family Dentistry to find out about dental bridges. The “window” in your smile can be closed by a dental bridge giving your smile a healthy, fresh look. Not only will a dental bridge improve your appearance, it will also restore the missing chewing surface lost with the missing teeth or tooth. If you have been avoiding some of your favorite foods because they irritate the soft tissues where teeth used to be, you can go back to eating them once you have your dental bridge.
A common treatment in restorative dentistry is dental bridges. It uses artificial teeth to close gaps in your smile and improve your oral health and function. Some of the benefits of the dental bridge are as follows :
The space left when a tooth is gone sets up the likelihood for more severe problems in the future. Adjacent teeth may begin to shift out of alignment as they slide into the open space. This shifting can eventually affect the other teeth in your mouth. Food traps develop causing places where plaque can build up and hide to the point where gum disease develops. Closing the space with a dental bridge will stop these things from happening. Besides solving the problems that can affect your oral health, bridgework also restores your smile.
Partial dentures can also be used to fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth, however, bridgework is fixed so you do not need to take it out for cleaning. You care for the dental bridge as you care for your teeth. Bridges look and feel like natural teeth too. Dr. Vuong will be happy to discuss the benefits of choosing a dental bridge to replace the missing teeth in your mouth.
