If you have one or several missing teeth, there are many solutions available to repair the gap that is left behind. No matter how you choose to do this, it is important to take steps to repair the gap as soon as possible. If left untreated or unfilled, gaps in between teeth can lead to bone erosion, the shifting of nearby teeth and even trouble eating, and speaking. Additionally, many patients do not realize that just one missing tooth can cause them to look older as the skin over the jaw can sag and lose structure.
With proper care, dental bridges can last a long time. They will require the same care that you give your natural teeth and should be brushed regularly and flossed at least once a day. We also encourage you to come in for regular dental visits so that your dentist can properly clean your dental bridges and see if they will need repair or adjustments.
