In order to ensure your smile has the best chance of success, establish an effective tooth restoration treatment plan for any oral accidents or injuries that arise. Risk and damage prevention can greatly improve your recovery time and ensure your smile can thrive in the future no matter what is thrown your way. However, tooth loss does happen from time to time, so start thinking about your options should it occur. One potential treatment to think about is dental bridges.

In order to protect your oral health, it is important to make sure that any missing teeth are accounted for. Completing your smile will not only improve the look of it, but it will also improve the function of it as well. Numerous issues and ailments are associated and linked to missing teeth, including tooth slippage and poor oral hygiene. If you have any missing teeth, it can lead to an increase in tooth decay as plaque buildup can occur in the spaces and gaps left behind. In addition, your jawbone can weaken, and gums could potentially cause teeth to move and rotate out of position. Thus, a tooth replacement such as a dental bridge will be needed.

Dental bridges are permanently affixed to your smile by linking directly to nearby or neighboring teeth. Because they are permanent fixtures, they will not move and slide around. This ensures that no food restrictions will be necessary, and you will be able to enjoy all the food you love once again. In addition, any hindrance in chewing or eating food, or speech impediments that may have been caused by the missing teeth will be effectively reversed.
