Are you confident with your oral health care and do you feel you’re doing enough to keep your smile safe and well protected for the future? Have you noticed any issues that may have arisen over the past few years with your teeth and gums? If you do have a downturn in your oral health, it could be linked to any lost or missing teeth that you may have. If you do have any missing teeth, it is imperative that they are replaced as soon as possible.

A failure to replace any missing teeth can lead to several oral health risks, which can include issues with your bite distribution, poor oral hygiene, tooth slippage, gum destabilization and a sunken in dental profile. If you are missing teeth, it can weaken your jawbone as well. All of these issues can arise as well as others because of a simple issue of even a single missing tooth. To replace a missing tooth, consider the use of a cosmetic dentistry upgrade prosthetic such as a dental bridge.

Dental bridges are designed by filling in the gaps left behind with permanent treatments that can keep other teeth in the area from moving around. It can also fill in the gaps where plaque and buildup may have started to accumulate.

Dental bridges are able to help restore all dietary hindrances because no food restrictions will be necessary. Because your dental bridges are firmly affixed in place, they will not move around like some other temporary treatments such as dentures might.
