Montclair Dental Care and their dentist Dr. Kenneth L. Childers, offer residents in Oakland, California, quality dental bridges to enhance their smile and make sure the form and function of their mouth remain intact. When a person loses one or more teeth, it can throw off their bite pattern and gradually start to erode the jawbone. Quality dental bridges can be created to fill in the gaps and stabilize the teeth preventing them from shifting out of place.
Other benefits include the following:
Because dental bridges fill in gaps and replace missing teeth, they help to maintain the alignment of your jaws. If your bite pattern is off, even a little, the surface of your teeth can begin to wear away. The longer your bite pattern is off, the more your teeth will be damaged. Using a dental bridge will restore your bite pattern, and there will be less wear and tear.
If one or more teeth are lost, the teeth surrounding the gap may start to move. With nothing to hold them in place, the teeth can continue to shift. Using a good quality dental bridge puts pressure on the surrounding teeth, holding them in place and preventing them from moving or shifting into the gap. Bridges can be permanently attached to your teeth or worn as a retainer and removed as desired.
When you lose a tooth, it can detract from your smile. A quality dental bridge will fill the gap and improve the look of your smile. The crowns used to create the bridge are made to look as close to your other teeth as possible. Wearing a bridge allows a person to feel more comfortable about their appearance as well as how they speak or eat.
