A dental bridge is an oral appliance which does exactly what it sounds like, bridges a gap created by missing teeth. Dental bridges are designed to look, feel and function just like part of your natural smile. Your dentist will make sure that your new teeth match the color, shape and even size as the rest of your smile. Dental bridges are secured in the mouth, if adjacent healthy teeth are present, dental crowns may be used. If the patient has no other healthy teeth in their smile, dental implants may be required. During your evaluation for a dental bridge in Pompano Beach, our dentist will discuss your different options and help you select the best option for you and your smile.
Many people think having missing teeth only impacts the appearance of their smile, this unfortunately is not the case. Once a tooth is missing, the body actually starts to absorb the bone and demineralize the area, resulting in the other teeth becoming loose, and even shifting. Changes to your smile can make it more difficult to properly care for your smile, also increasing your risk of tooth decay, cavity formation, oral infections and periodontal gum disease. A dental bridge can prevent other teeth in the smile from becoming compromised.
