If are missing any teeth, it is important to talk to your dentist about an effective tooth replacement therapy as soon as possible. You may have several different options. Dentures, dental implants, and dental bridges are all highly effective ways to replace missing teeth. However, dental bridges, also known as fixed partial dentures, are designed as permanent replacements that can fill in gaps by anchoring the bridge to the neighboring teeth. With a single dental bridge, you can have decades of support for your smile and restore lost functions that are often associated with missing teeth.
If you have any lost or missing teeth, it may hinder your ability to chew and eat properly.Missing teeth may even make it difficult for you to speak clearly. However, dental bridges can be crafted to fill in the areas and restore impaired functions. Dental bridges have even been noted for restoring bite stability and keeping your other teeth in proper alignment.
If missing teeth go untreated, it can increase the risk of a problems for your oral health. The gaps left behind can become a haven for plaque and bacteria to build up. Furthermore, your gums can destabilize and your jaw can weaken. Eventually, this will lead to tooth slippage as your other nearby teeth will begin to move and rotate out of alignment. Dental bridges can be inserted to prevent these negative consequences to your oral health.
