In short, our teeth function together to assist us with certain functions which include eating and speaking. You may be thinking that this is obvious, right?
Many people tend to overlook the importance of certain things in life, only to realize how important they were after they are gone. In the same way, many people first come to appreciate the important role their teeth play after loosing some of their teeth. Gaps that are present between your teeth can have dire consequences for your dental health. Moreover, they could impact your physical appearance.
People can loose teeth for various reasons. Maybe you were in a car accident or perhaps you are suffering from a chronic medical condition. Also, don’t forget that tooth loss can be one of the less desired effects of aging. The point is, if you’ve lost a tooth, get to the Dentist A.S.A.P. to discuss all the available options for replacing the teeth you’ve lost.
Dentists recommend dental bridges for any issues you may have encountered involving tooth loss. Say good-bye to the spaces in-between your teeth and say hello to a beautifully uniform smile!
Dental bridges provide connections similar to any other type of bridge. They connect your teeth and they are generally utilized for replacing lost teeth. Abutment teeth are the teeth located on either side of the space where your missing tooth used to be. The “pontic” is the new false tooth that will replace your missing tooth.
Newly designed false teeth are used to take care of the spaces in your smile and because of their “bridge-like” formation, dental bridges also help to hold up the structure of your face. Bridges can help you to chew your food correctly by ensuring that your jaws come together properly when you bite. Remember that when your teeth are misaligned, some of them may drift apart. Luckily dental bridges can help you to side-step this issue.
Fixed bridges provide the perfect solution. They can improve your dental health to a great extent and they can boost the appearance of your smile. Removable bridges are also optional. However, dentists argue that fixed bridges offer more stability.
If you have lost a tooth, you are probably aware of the difficulties that you can encounter with eating and speaking. Dental bridges can make these functions nearly effortless.
Dental bridges are designed with precision to match the natural appearance (including shape, size and colour) of your own teeth. They could be the solution that you were waiting for. Dental bridges can finally help you to get the beautiful, long-lasting smile you’ve been wanting for!
Don’t let missing teeth get in the way of you living your life to the fullest.
