Dental Options for Missing Teeth
There are a few options in dealing with missing
teeth. One is cosmetic dentistry veneers. Another is a dental bridge which is either
a tooth or a row of teeth this is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill
the area left by the tooth or teeth. Left
unfilled, the surrounding teeth can potentially drift out of their position as
well. The two crowns holding it in place
it in place that is attached onto the teeth on each side of the false teeth is
called the fixed bridge. This procedure is
what is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Once in place, fixed bridges cannot be
removed from the mouth.
Besides producing a smile that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, the benefits
of using a bridge is that it reduces the risk of gum disease, help correct many
bite issues and improve speck. Having a bridge does bring with it a diligent
commitment to oral hygiene. That commitment
will also mean many years of a beautiful smile.
