Why Do I Need a Dental Bridge?

Get Rid of Decayed Teeth

If a tooth needs to be extracted, dental bridges can replace it using the teeth next to the one that is getting extracted. This preserves the look of your smile and reduces the risk of oral health problems developing.

Fill in the Gap

When teeth are missing, bridges can be used to fill in any gaps left in the mouth effectively. While it may not seem like much at first, it can affect your confidence and make it difficult to eat.

Restore Your Confidence in Your Smile

A gap can seem like nothing, but sooner or later, you may get tired of seeing the space in your smile where a healthy tooth should be. Bridges can make that happen, giving you a natural-looking replacement tooth.

Chew More Effectively

Many people do not realize just how much even missing one tooth can affect their ability to chew. Instead of battling every bite you take, get a dental bridge to fill in the space, and make eating enjoyable again.

Reduce the Risk of Damage to the Surrounding Teeth

When teeth are lost, the bite force is not evenly distributed in the mouth and can cause surrounding teeth to be damaged. Bridges keep bite force balanced, reducing the risk.

Speak Clearly

Your teeth make it easier to speak, so missing any could cause speech to become more challenging to understand. Bridges can be applied to restore this speech.

Faster Solution Than Individual Implants

Implants may take several months to heal after they have been inserted, bur bridges can be done quickly and restore teeth in just days.

A More Affordable Option

The costs of restoring a smile can be quite high depending on the procedure, but dental bridges are affordable, so you and your family members can have a beautiful smile.

Bridges Minimize the Potential for Teeth Shifting

If you don’t get the gap filled in some way, your remaining teeth will begin to shift out of their original position to fill in the space on their own. A bridge keeps teeth from moving, holding them in their place.
