A dental bridge is a custom-made, tooth or several teeth that fill spaces where teeth used to be. Bridges can restore the strength of your bite and help you maintain the natural shape of your face after tooth loss.
Because our teeth are designed to work in tandem, it causes your other teeth to drift or tile into unused space. That can have a negative effect on your bite, will place more stress on your healthy teeth, and can cause damage and severe pain.
Teeth that have drifted into open spaces are also harder to clean, thus putting you at a higher risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
Having a dental bridge can help eliminate these and other oral health problems. To improve the strength and appearance of your teeth, talk to Tetri's Smile Dental Boutique about a possible bridge.
