Are you considering a dental bridge to replace any lost or missing teeth that you may have? Through the use of a dental bridge, a highly effective prosthetic device can be applied directly into your mouth to replace any missing teeth that you may have. Dental bridges are designed to be anchored to nearby or neighboring teeth, so you do not need to have them placed into your jawbone as dental implants are.
When dental bridges are anchored into your mouth, they are designed to help restore functions that may have been lost due to missing teeth. Oftentimes with missing teeth, you may suffer from issues including tooth slippage, gum destabilization, a weaker jaw, and poor oral hygiene. However, once a dental bridge is in place, it can help prevent other teeth from moving around and also redistribute bite forces correctly across your entire row of teeth. Furthermore, dental bridges are tooth-colored in appearance and blend in with the rest of your natural teeth. They are also helpful to fill in gaps where plaque buildup and bacteria may begin to collect, which often occurs in the holes left behind from missing teeth.
