Feeling confident about your smile can be difficult when you lose a tooth. Not only is the gap in your teeth unsightly, but it can also make it difficult to chew and speak properly. If you are looking for a way to restore your smile, you may want to consider dental bridges. Bridges are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth and come in various styles and materials.
In this post, we will explain how dental bridges work and the benefits they offer!
What Are Dental Bridges?
A bridge is a porcelain, ceramic, or metal appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. The procedure involves creating an "abutment" on each adjacent tooth to which the appliance will be attached. It is done by removing a portion of the tooth enamel and placing a metal connector in the exposed root. The abutment is then used to support the cemented or bonded dental bridge. Dental bridges are an effective way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
What Are the Best Benefits of Dental Bridges?
Many benefits come with dental bridges. One of the main benefits is that they can help to restore your smile. If you loose a tooth or more, a bridge can help fill in the gaps and give you back your smile. Another added benefit of dental bridges is that they can help to improve your oral health. By filling in the gaps, bridges can help to prevent gum disease and other oral health problems. Bridges can improve your chewing function and speech. Chewing properly or speaking clearly will be difficult if you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth. A bridge can help to restore your chewing function and speech.
