The Convenient Dental Solution For Missing Teeth True to its name, bridges help bridge the gap where your old tooth used to be. Gaps in your teeth cause your remaining teeth to shift in position to cover the empty spaces. This movement can cause you to develop a bad bite, gum disease, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Thus, bridges are a great way to prevent this from happening.
If you are missing one or more teeth and need to get bridges, Premier General Dentistry is more than ready to help you. The Benefits of Getting Bridges Getting bridges give you the following benefits:
- Improve your tooth’s appearance. A missing tooth (or several) makes your remaining teeth more vulnerable to diseases. Getting a bridge can help prevent this from happening.
- Give you the ability to properly chew, bite, and speak. A missing tooth (or several) affects your ability to do these functions.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position. Drifting teeth can cause an imbalance in the alignment of your teeth, which can cause more serious problems later on.
