What are dental bridges?
As you age, your teeth tend to become weaker and may damage over time. In these cases, your dentist may recommend restorative procedures, such as dental bridges, to repair and reconstruct the teeth. This is often helpful for patients who would like a better look to their smile, but also can help you to chew and speak properly and without discomfort. Dental bridges are natural-looking artificial teeth that can be permanently attached or removeable. The professionals at Concerned Dental have years of experience providing patients with restorative dental options to get you back to your fully functioning teeth and confident smile.
Why are dental bridges used?
Dental bridges are recommended when a person has lost one or more teeth. Tooth loss can occur for many reasons, most commonly:
- Poor personal oral hygiene
- Lack of professional dental care
- Natural aging
- Certain health conditions, like high blood pressure
- Traumatic injury to the face or jaw
- Gum disease
