A dental bridge is a successful appliance that can replace your missing teeth for more than 15 years if you take good care of it. It is a beneficial product that is recommended if you have one or more missing permanent teeth. This is a great option for your smile because if you keep from replacing your missing teeth, your remaining teeth can shift and move, giving you a crooked smile.

A dental bridge can give you a strong and functional smile, and it can also:

• Restore your oral health
• Improve your appearance
• Give you the force you need in your bite
• Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place
• Maintain the shape of your face
• Give you the ability to properly chew and speak again

A dental bridge is made of dental crowns and false teeth. The dental crowns lie on the outsides of the bridge and they anchor the bridge to the remaining teeth in the smile. The false teeth lie between the crowns and fill the gaps in your smile. The best way to care for your bridge is by keeping up with your oral hygiene routine and attending your dental checkups. These caring techniques will help you keep your appliance in tip-top shape and it will help you have the perfect smile for many years to come.
