The best smiles are complete smiles. If you have any lost or missing teeth, consider the benefits of a dental bridge, which is also known as fixed partial dentures. Dental bridges are permanent tooth prosthetics that are anchored directly into your mouth by attaching and linking to nearby or neighboring teeth. They provide a durable level of replacement for any teeth you may lack.
If you do have missing teeth and you fail to replace them, it can lead to a severe downturn in your oral health and give rise to many numerous oral ailments, including tooth decay. This is because plaque buildup can begin to manifest in the gaps left behind. Furthermore, your gums can destabilize and cause other nearby teeth to slide out of place.
With the addition of dental bridges, you can help reverse effects caused by missing or lost teeth. Furthermore, you can help enhance your eating, chewing, and speaking functions that may have been lost due to missing teeth. Dental bridges are also highly effective for restoring bite stability and assisting with space maintenance between teeth.
