Dental Bridge

Missing teeth can pose a host of oral health issues. Your teeth can shift to the gap left by the lost tooth. You will also be at risk of losing your jawbone tissue because that area left by your tooth will not be receiving the stimulation it needs to continue growing and remain in strong condition. In the end, the bone that used to hold your tooth in place will eventually disintegrate and disappear. With loss of jaw tissue achieving a bright and full smile will become a challenge.

Dental bridges are an excellent solution for missing teeth. You can get these restorations at Forest Grove Dental Studio. We have highly skilled dental experts who can assist in restoring your dental health. Before deciding on the treatment however, you need to know whether or not you are the right candidate for a dental bridge restoration.

If You Have Missing Teeth

People with several missing teeth in their mouth are candidates for dental bridges. There are several causes of missing teeth such as gum disease, severe tooth decay and cavities, facial trauma if you are in contact sports and in rare cases, there are people who do not develop permanent teeth.

Whatever the cause, you should not continue having gaps in your mouth. Gaps in your mouth are a major reason why you might be unable to achieve a bright smile. Therefore, to have a complete set of teeth for a bright and full smile dental bridges can be the right solution for you.

When You Have Strong Health Teeth On Both Sides of the Gap

In order to get dental bridge treatment, you are required to have two teeth that are strong and healthy on either side of the gap. This is because a dental bridge uses these for support and grip. The fake tooth (pontic) in the dental bridge is cemented in place using crowns that are on either side of the gap. Our dentist will examine the remaining teeth in your mouth to determine whether you are the right candidate for a dental bridge. We use modern techniques to conduct a thorough examination and to personalize your treatment plan.

Why is it Important to have a Dental Bridge?

All teeth work together and any missing tooth can greatly affect the functionality of the remaining teeth in your mouth. The upper teeth opposite the gap can move into this space causing bite problems. You will also have difficulty chewing food, and pain if you accidentally apply pressure on the gap. Also, you may be self-conscious about your facial appearance especially when you smile. Dental bridges can be the answer that you need to avoid these dental issues.
