The Benefits Dental Bridges
Much like a bridge over a roadway, a dental bridge will close the gap between missing teeth. In order to support this structure, it will require the reshaping and adding crowns to the abutment teeth/anchor teeth. Then you will have a secure structure to enjoy eating and smiling.
Who Needs Dental Bridges?
Anyone who has missing or severely damaged teeth is usually a good candidate for a dental bridge. This prevents undue shifting of the remaining teeth, gum disease, or bit issues. Having missing teeth can also be the cause of jaw pain and headaches.
More than cosmetic, bridges serve practical purposes:
- Restoring a healthy bite to facilitate chewing
- Maintaining the contours of the face
- Improving your smile
- Reducing damage to remaining teeth from a misaligned bite
- Restoring self-confidence after an accident or injury
