Have you ever heard of a dental bridge? Although most people are highly familiar with dentures, dental bridges are an alternative form of tooth replacement therapy. Porcelain fixed dental bridges have the ability to attach directly to other nearby or neighboring teeth in your mouth for a solid hold that is both permanent and long-lasting.
If you are in need of a dental bridge, speak with your dentist to determine which size, shape, and form is best for you. As they are customizable, they can be used to improve the aesthetics of your smile as well as its function. With a dental bridge, you can fill in gaps left behind by missing teeth, which can improve your ability to speak, chew, and eat. Furthermore, bridges will make sure all other nearby teeth stay in place and will not suffer from tooth slippage.
If you have issues with bite stability, the movement of your teeth will disrupt not only your normal tooth functions but the functions of other nearby teeth. Thus, it is always important to replace any missing teeth with a dental bridge or similar treatment. As there are many different types of tooth replacements to consider, it may be necessary to speak with your dentist about which form of prosthetic would work best for you.
