If you are missing one or many teeth due to dental disease, decay or oral trauma it is important to know that you have many solutions when it comes to restoring your smile. One of the most popular solutions to repair the look and function of your teeth is to replace those that are missing with a dental bridge.
A dental bridge can close a gap left by missing teeth by replacing them with false teeth anchored by crowns or implants. At Diamond Spring, our team offers many varieties of bridgework, so ask about your options during your prosthetic consultation.
No matter which method works for you, it is important to repair any tooth that is missing sooner rather than later. If you leave a gap in your smile this can not only cause you pain or discomfort but can also allow your remaining teeth to shift or your jaw bone to deteriorate. Having your teeth replaced with dental bridges can also restore your smile and can help give you back your positive self-image and confidence in interacting with other people.
Missing teeth can cause the shape of your face to change, as well as your speech to slur and saliva to build up within the mouth. A dental bridge can help prevent each of these issues.
