How Will A Dental Bridge Impact My Oral Health?
Posted September 28, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
If you are struggling with the consequences of tooth loss, you certainly do not need to be told that an incomplete smile can create functional concerns. However, you may be unsure exactly how much there is to be gained from a dental prosthetic, beyond the improvement to your appearance. With a dental bridge, you can receive permanent support for tooth loss. Your permanent prosthetic can offer real functional benefits, making it easier for you to bite and chew, and relieving stress on your jaw joints. That being said, there is nothing wrong with appreciating how a prosthetic improves how you look! Your bridge can be constructed in order to replace a single lost tooth, but you also have the option of receiving a bridge that replaces several missing teeth.
Securing of your dental bridge typically involves the placing of two dental crowns, which will act to lock in your restoration. Once secured, you will be able to enjoy permanent support, which can be more comfortable, as well as functionally advantageous.
Not every patient who receives a dental bridge will need to have crowns put in place to hold it in position. You may prefer to have a bridge secured with a dental implant. An implant also provides permanent support, but it can do so without modifying any of your teeth. You can also enjoy support for your jawbone, as the implant effectively takes on functions of a tooth root. You can protect yourself against jawbone deterioration, while counting on a steady hold for your restoration.
