Are you missing a few teeth? If you’ve got gaps in your smile that you’d like to fill in, we’ve got great choices for you!
The Importance of Replacing Teeth
Filling in the gaps in your smile with good dental replacement options is more than just a cosmetic choice, it’s a choice that will help support your oral health. Did you know that leaving teeth missing for long periods of time can cause stress and damage to your other surrounding teeth? It can also cause shifting in your smile and can cause your remaining natural teeth to become displaced.
Plus, those who leave teeth missing more long periods of time are more likely to experience bone loss and gum disease at the site of the lost tooth. Choosing a quality dental replacement option can help protect your teeth, gums, and jaw bone.
Dental bridges are false teeth that can be secured to remaining natural teeth in order to fill in the holes in your smile. Some are removable but in our office, we also offer more permanent options. Fixed bridges can be permanently secured to natural teeth or can be secured using dental implants. A fixed dental bridge can help keep you from experiencing complications like shifting teeth and bone loss and they help your smile look flawless and radiant.
Some of the benefits of a fixed bridge are that they aren’t removable so you don’t have to worry about taking it out and cleaning it. It can be worn at all times, while you eat, sleep, drink, and live your life to the fullest. It’s also a pretty cost-effective dental replacement option. So if you’re looking to replace missing teeth on budget, this might be something to look into.
