Getting a Dental Bridge? 3 Benefits You Can Expect

July 25, 2017
Posted By: Dr. Aaron Cook, DMD

It is always a good idea to replace a missing tooth as quickly as possible. Your self-confidence is affected because who feels like smiling with that big gap in your teeth? Eating can be challenging and uncomfortable, too, as remaining teeth try to do the work of the missing tooth.

Surrounding teeth will start to drift into the empty space, creating tooth misalignment. Instead of just a missing tooth, you end up with an entirely different problem to solve! But bridges at our Birmingham, AL dental office, are the perfect solution to resolve the esthetic and functional problems that go along with tooth loss.

Perks of Dental Bridges

  1. Your self-confidence will soar! It can be very demoralizing to try to live a fulfilling life when you know your smile doesn’t look healthy. A dental bridge can change all that by restoring your smile and your desire to participate fully in life again.
  2. You can go back to eating the foods you love. A missing tooth limits your diet to foods that don’t cause discomfort when you chew. Your new bridge restores function and allows you to go back to eating all the foods you love.
  3. You don’t have to worry about the effect a missing tooth will have on your oral health. The artificial tooth in a bridge acts as a placeholder to prevent neighboring teeth from moving and leading to a potential misalignment. Your new bridge also takes the stress off of other healthy teeth to protect them from damage.
