Bridges are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants. Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Function and appearance are important reasons for wearing a dental bridge. A bridge helps support your lips and cheeks. The loss of a back tooth may cause your mouth to sink and your face to look older. Additionally, missing teeth can cause speech disorders because they are used to make many of the sounds we use to speak clearly
Dental bridges require regular and consistent home and professional dental care. This is because the area beneath the dental bridge must be cleaned. The dentists and hygienists at Summerlyn Dental Care will instruct you on proper care of your bridge to help ensure the health of the teeth supporting your new dental bridge.
