When you lose a tooth, there is much more at stake than aesthetic looks. You lose dental structure continuity when you lose a tooth and need to take corrective action. Dental bridges can be your perfect solution.

Many people who have missing teeth lack confidence because they cannot smile and they find it hard to be cheerful. With missing teeth, teeth which are out of control or teeth which are not in proper alignment, it is time to visit your dentist to resolve these problems. Your dental visit will surely give a reassuring sense of confidence that you have been missing.

Missing teeth creates a lot of problems. It will make you uncomfortable in chewing, makes it complicated, makes your teeth drift and makes it difficult to clean properly, etc. It affects overall the health of your mouth. It is through the dental bridge that the teeth adjacent to the gap are used as anchors. The bridge is made up of crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and patients feel comfortable in the mouth. Dental bridges are hardly noticeable because they look and feel natural. Many patients claim that they feel the dental bridge as real and comfortable as their natural teeth did. Others claim that they even feel better than the natural teeth. Bridges do not need to be removed regularly like dentures for cleaning but it will be cleaned by brushing like the natural teeth.
