Are you missing any teeth? If so, it is imperative to have them replaced as soon as possible. If left untreated, missing or lost teeth can lead to severe oral ailments within your smile. The gap that exists due to a missing tooth can become a haven for bacteria and plaque buildup. If you are missing any teeth, consider dental bridges to repair your smile.

Dental bridges are designed to improve your smile’s appearance and functionality. Missing teeth are known to destroy your facial structure and make you look older and weaker. In addition, if your teeth are not there to hold each other in check, tooth slippage can occur. Dental bridges can provide you with a smile that will make you look younger, and allow your smile to function as it is intended.

Dental bridges are designed to easily connect to nearby and neighboring teeth for a permanent hold that can last a lifetime. Furthermore, dental bridges are highly effective for restoring your eating habits, as they do not require food restrictions as dentures do. This means you can once again enjoy tough and chewy foods such a steak. If you are interested in learning more about dental bridges, contact your dentist soon.
