Is your smile missing a few of its pearly white members? Are you a few stacks short of a complete dental deck? Not all smiles are complete, so use a dental bridge to help. Dental bridges are a tooth replacement service that uses artificial teeth positioned in gaps where missing teeth are, to fill out your smile. They are held in place by directly latching onto nearby and neighboring teeth for a permanent hold as durable as normal teeth.
Dental bridges are used to help fill in the areas left behind by your smile. If these areas are left unchecked, they can become safe zones for bacteria and food residue to hide. They can also be causes of infection and even contribute to the weakening of your gums. If your gums begin to weaken and loosen, it will destabilize them causing other nearby teeth to move and rotate out of their natural positions. Dental bridges help you keep your facial structure complete and your gums strong.
Dental bridges are also an ideal alternative for individuals who lack the jawbone strength for dental implants. Whereas dental implants are placed into the bone, dental bridges are merely linked to other teeth, including if necessary, other dental implants. Dental bridges are permanent fixtures that can be easily repaired and replaced if needed.
