If you are missing more than one tooth, then your surrounding teeth are likely to move into the empty spaces, causing your remaining teeth to become misaligned, increasing your risk of developing jaw and bite problems.
A dental bridge is a way of replacing these missing teeth. Made of strong porcelain, the procedure is similar to the one carried out to develop a crown.
The supporting teeth either side of the gap, to which the bridge is bonded, are prepared and the bridge is precisely constructed to fit snugly over the top. Teeth have many functions apart from chewing and biting, so it is extremely important that missing teeth are replaced for the following reasons:
- Improve appearance
- To prevent damage to other teeth due to stress
- To prevent teeth near the gap from moving and shifting
- To preserve and maintain natural bite
- To improve chewing and eating
- Prevent speech alteration
- To stop facial aging and sagging of muscles
