Is having a big, unattractive gap in your mouth from missing teeth keeping you from greeting people with a nice smile? A full set of functional teeth is crucial to your dental and oral health, speech and appearance. If you’re missing one or more teeth, chewing becomes more difficult, and you’re more susceptible to gum disease, speech disorders and a misshapen face.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with natural-looking, artificial teeth. The types of bridges are:
- Fixed and removable bridges. These attach artificial teeth to the adjoining healthy teeth with crowns.
- Implant bridge. This attaches artificial teeth under the gum tissue or directly to the jaw.
Stanhope Family Dentistry can help you determine the best bridge option for your mouth to improve your dental health and restore your happy smile.
