Advantages of Dental Bridges

Improved Oral Health

A dental bridge fills the gap between missing teeth. Once the bridge is in place, patients no longer have to worry about the gaps in their teeth. Instead, patients can enjoy improved oral and overall health.

When patients have gaps between their teeth, these spaces can cause a variety of problems. The missing tooth structure can cause the other teeth to shift out of place, which may create problems with bite alignment and TMJ disorders. Patients may also experience jaw bone loss in the areas where the teeth are missing. A dental bridge can help prevent these issues.

Improved Facial Appearance

A dental bridge is capable of improving your smile’s appearance by filling in your smile’s gaps. These gaps, caused by missing teeth, can make your smile look less attractive.

Gaps can also leave portions of your smile more vulnerable to plaque buildup, which can cause tooth decay. A dental bridge can prevent this from occurring.

Improved Speech

One advantage of dental bridges is that they can help improve your speech. This is because the missing teeth can cause your speech pattern to change. The teeth (or the space) can affect your pronunciation of some sounds. With dental bridges, your speech may improve.

Improved Comfort

A bridge improves comfort by allowing patients to eat their favorite foods without complications. Patients who get a bridge can enjoy foods like corn on the cob, apples, and other foods that may have previously led to pain when chewing.

Improved Eating

A dental bridge can restore your ability to chew, eat, and speak properly. Eating is one of the most difficult things to do without teeth. By replacing your missing teeth, you can restore your ability to eat what you want.

Improved Oral Functionality

A dental bridge can restore your ability to eat and speak properly. It provides support for your mouth and helps keep your existing teeth in place.

You can eat and speak just as you would if you had all of your teeth. This can improve your quality of life and prevent further oral health complications.
