Did you know that missing teeth can continue to damage your mouth long after they are gone? If you are missing any teeth you should consider tooth replacement, to avoid further damage to your mouth. If a gap is left unfilled, it can become a haven for bacteria and can cause your gums to destabilize. Then the nearby teeth could start to slip.
Dental bridges provide stability for all areas that are missing teeth. They work by permanently replacing missing teeth by latching onto nearby teeth. They can even latch on to previous dental implants if need be. Dental bridges are a safe and effective way to fill out your facial structure, which can keep you from looking older.
Dental bridges are highly durable and can last for many years. In some situations, they can last a lifetime of heavy wear and tear on your mouth. Dental bridges are also useful for spacing issues that are caused by misalignments and malocclusions within your smile.
