Dental Bridges Bridge the Gap in Your Smile
Losing natural teeth can leave you feeling like your smile is not as attractive as it used to be, but did you know that your remaining teeth may shift and create additional dental conditions?
Misaligned bite – When teeth shift, it can cause teeth to come together incorrectly. A misaligned bite can lead to sensitivity, premature wear, and cause jaw-related conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD.
Periodontal disease – Shifting teeth may expose roots, which can feel sensitive when brushing or when exposed to cold drinks or foods. Additionally, the bone that once supported your tooth may diminish because the tooth’s root is no longer present to stimulate healthy bone. Both conditions are a form of periodontal disease that causes more complex problems than simply replacing a missing tooth.
While dental implants are often considered the best way to replace missing teeth, some patients want an alternative or don’t qualify for dental implants because of medical conditions or certain medications.
The best dentist in Lake Worth, Florida will always give you more than one option to choose from and help you choose the one that puts a smile on your face.
Dental Bridges to Complete Your Smile
Dental bridges avoid the need for surgery and still close the gap in your smile with esthetic and reliable results.
Placing two anchor crowns on adjacent natural teeth suspend an artificial tooth in the space left by your missing tooth. Dr. Kyle Kromrey will design a dental bridge that matches the surrounding teeth for a seamless look. A properly designed dental bridge can add confidence when you smile and help you eat and speak normally.
Dental bridges have been around for a long time and help patients maintain a healthy diet and feel more confident. It’s best to choose a dentist with experience in dental bridges and to consider all of your options, so you can make an informed choice for the future of your smile.
