Shed Some Light on Dental Bridges

Posted .


When seeking to improve your smile, it’s a good idea to make sure your teeth are always cleaned. In addition, if you have lost any teeth, or are scheduled to have any future teeth extracted, it is important to seek out tooth replacement prosthetics to ensure replacements can be given. A highly effective tooth prosthetic that is permanently affixed to your smile is a dental bridge. A dental bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is inserted into gaps were missing teeth once were and permanently anchored to nearby teeth.

Numerous issues associated with lost or missing teeth can include further dental damage. If you’re missing any teeth, other oral health ailments can arise because an incomplete smile not only affects the oral appearance of your smile but can make life harder on the remaining teeth. Not only can it become a haven for plaque buildup and bacteria in the areas left behind, but missing teeth can lead to a sunken in facial structure, a weakened jawbone, tooth slippage, and gum destabilization. To this end, it is important to replace any missing or lost teeth.

One of the most effective tooth replacement therapies to consider is a dental bridge. A dental bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is permanently affixed to your smile to have the complete oral look you deserve. They’re highly effective because they are anchored to adjacent missing teeth and do not need to be attached to your jaw bone as dental implants are. This can be important because if your jaw is not strong enough to a support a dental implant, a dental bridge can be used as an alternative. In addition, dental bridges can help your smile’s appearance and restore bite stability.
