Having a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can affect your life in a lot more ways than an embarrassing laugh, smile or picture. It can change the alignment of your teeth, affect the shape of your face and alter the way you speak and chew. A dental bridge can solve all of those problems by filling that gap with artificial teeth.
A dental bridge is a fixed, permanent appliance that replaces your missing teeth with artificial teeth that are made out of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of those materials. You cannot take it out of your mouth without the help of your professional dentist.
The success of the dental bridge depends on you keeping your natural teeth healthy and strong. So, brushing twice a day and flossing once a day is essential. These tasks will prevent tooth decay, gum disease and any further tooth loss. Keeping up with your regular cleaning appointments will help you find dental problems early and will make treatment more successful. Also, eating a healthy and balanced diet is important for your overall body and oral health.
