You may have an unfortunate incident where you may have to lose a tooth, it can be due to an accident or a cracked or fractured tooth. It can cause a number of problems like being conscious of the gap and avoid smiling altogether or difficulty in eating.
While you may not be aware, a missing tooth (or multiple missing teeth) can also cause movement of neighboring teeth in the mouth which can disturb your bite’s balance and put unnecessary pressure on other teeth. There are a few options for the replacement of a missing tooth. Out of them, a dental bridge is a fairly quick and excellent option for restoring your smile and your confidence by using the latest technologies and techniques.
Your dentist will be able to discuss all the treatment options available to you and recommend the best one suited to your particular need.
A bridge essentially bridges the gap caused by a missing tooth and restoring health and function to your smile without the need for surgery. Using the teeth on either side of your missing tooth, a bridge holds the replacement tooth in place to prevent further shifting and to maintain the completeness of your smile. Bridges can be completed in as little as 2-3 weeks, making them low-hassle and easy to manage.
