If you are ready to enhance your smile with an artificial tooth replacement, look no further than dental bridges. Dental bridges, also known as fixed partial dentures, can fill in gaps where missing teeth are. Dental bridges are typically made out of metal and porcelain materials anchored permanently to nearby healthy teeth. Multiple types of dental bridges exist, including cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded adhesive bridges.

Missing teeth are severe oral ailments that can destroy your smile. Not only can missing teeth cause oral health problems due to an increase in tooth decay and bacteria in the holes left behind, but they can cause gum destabilization and potential tooth slippage in your other healthy remaining teeth. In order to reverse these ailments, a replacement such as a dental bridge will be required.

There are numerous benefits that come with replacing any lost teeth. Typically, depending on where the teeth were located, you may have suffered speech impediments or a hindrance in your abilities to chew and eat food. Once these teeth are effectively restored with a dental bridge, your functions can be restored as well. Furthermore, dental bridges can help restore the look of your smile as well.

In order to ensure your smile is functioning as intended, restorations are necessary. If you are missing a lot of teeth, your chewing forces can be distributed unevenly, and you can end up with improper bites and issues associated with tooth loss. Dental bridges will once again restore these functions and ensure bite stability occurs evenly throughout your entire mouth.
