When it comes to speaking and chewing, all of your teeth are important! Tooth loss is common due to aging, physical trauma, gum disease, and decay. Fortunately, you don’t have to give up on a perfect smile after tooth loss.
Dental bridges are permanent tooth replacement devices. At Dream Dentist, we create true-to-life dental bridges that will give you the confidence and functionality you may currently be missing.
Options for Your Dental Bridge
A traditional dental bridge includes two dental crowns and the new tooth or teeth. The healthy natural teeth on either side of the gap become the abutment teeth, and they will hold your replacement teeth steady.
Traditional bridges can either be removable or fixed, based on your preferences. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth by metal clasps or precision attachments instead of crowns.
Dr. Thompson also completes implant supported bridges, which may be the closest alternative to your natural pearly whites. Implants are tiny titanium roots that are installed in the jawbone. Supported dental bridges are held securely in place by dental implants.
Why Do I Need a Dental Bridge?
Preserve Your Youth: After tooth loss, the face may fall, giving you a prematurely aged appearance. A dental bridge will support your lips and cheeks so you can maintain that youthful look.
Protect Your Smile: Teeth were designed to complement one another, so when one or two teeth are missing, the other teeth are strained. Teeth may shift and become crooked. Gums and soft tissues may become irritated until you replace your missing teeth.
Reduce Your Risk: A dental bridge will decrease your risk of periodontal disease. An increased risk of gum disease has shown itself to be one of the worst side effects of missing teeth. Dental bridges help you avoid future tooth loss and jaw bone complications.
Enjoy Your Life: Speak clearly, chew easily, and smile boldly. A dental bridge will restore your abilities to speak with ease and eat all of your favorite foods. Its natural appearance will restore your confidence in your smile.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you probably already know about their importance to your self-esteem and dental health. Missing teeth should be replaced before further issues arise.
After just a few appointments with Dr. Thompson at Dream Dentist, you’ll have a full and complete smile again. Our dental bridges are crafted with the finest materials and are custom-made to suit your smile.
