Is your mouth fully prepared for the fall season and all the sweets and treats that come with it? As the harvest season begins to take effect, your teeth and your oral health care need to be cared for and maintained. Furthermore, it is important to make sure that your smile is complete and ready for the tasks and risks that lie ahead. If you suffer from any lost or missing teeth, be sure to have them replaced immediately. An excellent tooth replacement treatment option is dental bridges.
If the tooth is missing or lost, it must be replaced as soon as possible. If left unchecked, plaque buildup can arise in the area left behind. In addition, the lack of stability in your mouth can cause gum destabilization, which will result in nearby or neighboring tooth moving or sliding out of position. With the help of a dental bridge, your other teeth can be held in place. Ironically enough, it is the other teeth themselves that hold the dental bridge in place.
A dental bridge is designed to connect to other teeth in your mouth for a durable hold that can potentially last a lifetime. Although dental bridges are permanent replacements for lost or missing teeth, there are highly durable and we can continue to provide functionality to your smile and be customized to blend in nicely with your other natural teeth. In some cases, dental bridges can even restore a more youthful look to your face that may have been lost due to missing teeth that sunk in your facial structure.
Don’t wait until it’s too late for a dental bridge.
