Do you have a missing tooth or missing teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile or laugh because the gap where a tooth should be will show? Do you have a hard time chewing because you have a missing tooth? Are the teeth on one side of your mouth getting worn down because you chew on that side to compensate for a missing tooth on the other side?
If so, a tooth bridge or dental bridge might make all that difficulty disappear!
The Structure of a Dental Bridge
A dental bridge or tooth bridge can literally bridge the gap and make your mouth full again. You can laugh, smile, eat and chew naturally. It corrects the issues that may have kept you from smiling or even eating properly.
Basically, a tooth bridge or dental bridge is a false tooth, made from several different safe, strong materials, and it is connected between the teeth on either side. Those teeth, whether they are your real teeth or dental implants, have crowns placed on them, so the dental bridge is secured between the crowns.
The Advantages of a Dental Bridge
The bridge is just like a regular, natural tooth. In fact, you may forget that you ever had a missing tooth!
There are several advantages to getting a tooth bridge or dental bridge. A tooth bridge or dental bridges can:
- Take an unsightly smile and make it complete and beautiful again.
- Help you chew and eat again on both sides of your mouth!
- Restore your face to the shape it was when you had a full set of teeth.
- Keep all of your remaining teeth in their proper places.
