Missing any teeth in your mouth, even just one, can lead to oral health issues. However, your New Essence Dentistry professional in Sacramento has a way for you to restore the function of your bite and the appearance of your smile. Dental bridges are just one of the restorative dentistry services we offer to patients in our office.
Your teeth work as a unit, coming together and allowing you to eat, speak, and laugh properly and with confidence. Any spaces between teeth could cause them to shift out of position, which could lead to pain and damage to your remaining teeth along with the jaw muscles and joints. Without a tooth to stimulate the jawbone, degeneration of tissue occurs and the face could become more sunken.
To avoid major issues with your teeth, visit your dentist and inquire about dental bridges that increase your oral health and restore your smile. There are several different kinds of bridges, but the most popular are fixed bridges, removable bridges, and implant-supported bridges.
A fixed bridge works by using the remaining teeth in your mouth as an anchor to securely hold your replacement tooth in place. They’re custom designed for every patient and do not need to be removed while sleeping or performing other activities.
A removable bridge can be removed from the mouth easily as well as comfortably. Natural teeth are still used to hold the bridge in place, making it very similar to a fixed bridge.
These bridges use implants that are inserted into the jawbone to keep prosthetic teeth in place. It is a permanent way to replace missing teeth and give you a healthy smile for the rest of your life. For more information about implanted bridges, speak with your local dentist near you.
Patients can speak with our dental staff members about options for restoring oral health and bite efficiency.
