Losing a tooth is never fun. Losing several teeth in a row is even worse. When tooth loss and gaps in your teeth are an issue, it may be time to look at what dental services near you are available.
Thankfully, bridges are a great option to fix the gap from missing teeth and preserve the integrity of your remaining teeth while giving you back your smile.
We offer restorative dental procedures like dental bridges in Brentwood with the sole purpose of being able to give people their smiles back.
A dental bridge is a cosmetic or restorative option that replaces missing teeth. Bridges are designed to stay anchored and act as an artificial tooth root, holding the surrounding teeth tight together while filling out gaps left by one or more missing teeth.
This closes the gap and protects the rest of your teeth as they tend to weaken after losing other teeth.
Bridges support your natural bite and help you chew food properly, so it doesn’t destroy your other healthy teeth around them.
They also allow for speech to be clearer with less slurring of words because bridges maintain proper spacing between upper and lower jaws on either side of the gap from lost teeth.
A bridge is made by an expert from a piece of a false tooth, called a pontic. The pontic will be shaped and fitted to cover the space left by a missing tooth or teeth.
When it’s fixed in place, your natural bite will feel more stable, and you can chew food better without damaging any other healthy teeth around them. Not only will your smile look better, but it will also feel better when you eat as well.
At Brentwood Dental Art, we do our best to offer the services you need so that no matter the state of your oral health, you can have your smile and ability to eat back.
