Missing teeth may be gone, but their effects can linger forever. Halitosis from bacteria trapped in the gaps left behind, unstable gums and teeth, and misshapen jawlines, are all effects from not getting a missing tooth gap cared for. Dental bridges fill those gaps in your mouth, and can also serve to offer better protection from tooth decay for the surrounding teeth left behind. Dental bridges offer an assortment of benefits:

– eating: bridges can make it much easier to chew food than with removable dentures or missing teeth

– appearance: bridges can vastly improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile

– facial structure: dental bridges can fix malformed facial structures caused by missing teeth

– drifting: bridges can prevent further movement of teeth from wandering out of position due to toothless gaps

– speech: bridges can vastly improve speech, especially if the bridge is for the upper front teeth

– durability: with proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last over a decade

– alignment: bridges prevent further misalignment of the jaw and bite line caused by missing teeth
