Healthy and strong teeth support and maintain your jaw alignment. When you lose one or more teeth, your remaining teeth may shift. When this occurs you may find the ability to chew and or speak may be affected. One option for replacing missing teeth is a bridge.
dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth. The new artificial teeth fill the space and eliminate the gap where the natural teeth had been. The bridge is bonded onto surrounding teeth which act as an anchor for support. Regardless of the type of bridge recommended, its success depends on keeping the surrounding teeth healthy and strong. The most common cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease. Following a proper dental hygiene home care routine and visiting the dentist and hygienist as recommended will help assure your remaining teeth stay healthy. Dental Implants are another excellent option for replacing one or more missing teeth. We also offer all on 4 dental implants.
