Dental Bridges in Leigh-on-Sea
There are several reasons for why you may have a missing tooth, but the affect it can have on your daily life can be pretty detrimental. From impacting what you eat to the affects it can have on your social life, having gaps in your smile can really have a knock-on effect on how you look and feel.
If left, missing teeth can also begin to affect the rest of your mouth, putting extra strain on the remaining surrounding teeth, and often leading to bone loss in the gums if left too long.
But why opt for a dental bridge over other tooth loss solutions? There are a range of bridges available, including fixed bridges, adhesive bridges and cantilever bridges, but amongst the most popular, and the type offered here at Highland View are fixed bridges.
What Are Fixed Bridges?
Fixed bridges are an ideal solution where fewer teeth are missing, benefiting from the strength and stability of the semi-precious metal base which goes between the surrounding teeth. Thanks to their solid structure, bridges are extremely durable and hard wearing, making them a great long-term solution to missing teeth.
Where you have one or very few missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap, attaching to crowns on the surrounding teeth and anchoring the artificial tooth in place. You may also be able to have a bridge fixed to your jaw with dental implants if you have multiple missing teeth next to each other.
Why Opt For a Dental Bridge?
Whether it’s just one missing tooth or several, it’s important that you find a solution that works for you before more damage is done. Dental bridges are a popular option, and for good reason – as there are a host of benefits on offer, including:
- Restores a natural looking smile
- Restores the ability to eat and talk properly
- Boosts your confidence
- Helps to prevent further bone loss and maintains your facial structure
- Helps to prevent surrounding teeth shifting into the gap
