Dental Bridges are a viable option for replacing missing teeth
Missing teeth not only affect your smile but can hinder how your teeth function. They can alter your bite by causing the remaining teeth to shift out of alignment, which can put undue pressure on your jaw. Dental bridges from The International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, can resolve these problems while improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
What is a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are prosthetic teeth that can be used to replace one or several missing teeth. The process involves placing dental crowns on natural teeth at both ends of the gap where your missing teeth used to be. These two crowns are attached to artificial teeth in between to complete your smile. Dental bridges fill the gap left by missing teeth to enhance your smile, maintain your bite, and make eating easier.
The importance of replacing missing teeth
Replacing missing teeth will restore your smile, which is important for your appearance, confidence, and self-esteem. Equally as important is that dental bridges restore tooth function to the way it used to be. Since your teeth are designed to work as a team, losing natural teeth can lead to problems with:
- Shifting teeth
- Jawbone loss
- Undue pressure being put on your jaw and remaining teeth
