Grove Dental can help you regain both your smile and your confidence with quality dental bridges in Lombard, Bolingbrook, Downers Grove and Wheaton.
An improper bite, difficulty speaking, gum disease and poor self-confidence are just a few of the problems that can result from untreated tooth loss. Among the most effective restorative procedures for replacing missing teeth, dental bridges or a tooth bridge are an excellent option for regaining your healthy, beautiful smile and preventing additional problems.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges (i.e., tooth bridges) are “fixed,” long-term tooth replacements, which means they do not have to be taken in and out. In fact, bridges can last many years with proper care and will simply feel like a natural part of your mouth. Your dentist may recommend a front teeth bridge or a molar bridge depending on your specific dental needs and which teeth need restored.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
There are many reasons your teeth can benefit from a fixed bridge:
- Restore your ability to chew and speak properly
- Preserve the shape of your face
- Reduce stress on your neighboring teeth
- Prevent your adjacent teeth from shifting out of alignment
- Renew your self-confidence with an improved, natural-looking smile
- Prevent opposing teeth on the opposite arch from over-erupting or growing too long
Are Dental Bridges Right for You?
If you’re missing a group of teeth due to an accident, an injury or oral disease, it is important to fill the gaps between teeth as soon as possible; a permanent dental bridge is an excellent option for restoring the empty space. While you may not realize it, delaying treatment for tooth loss can lead to more substantial health problems down the road, including:
- Gum disease
- Shifting of adjacent teeth
- Bone loss
- Speech and chewing difficulty
