Have you had a recent tooth extraction? Did you have an infected tooth? Or perhaps your tooth cracked or chipped during a sporting event or at work. Whatever the reason, you now have a missing tooth, and you need to consider your options. If you live in Portland Oregon
, a dental bridge from Rose City Dental Care
can replace your lost tooth and protect your oral health..
WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
Dental bridges use one false tooth, called a pontic, attached to two crowns, called abutments. The abutments go on top of the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. With their support, the pontic has the strength to replace the lost tooth. If you think you might benefit from a dental bridge, our Portland, Oregon dentist can determine if your teeth qualify for the treatment
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A DENTAL BRIDGE?
With your dental bridge anchored in place, you protect the rest of your teeth from further problems. Dental bridges offer the following health benefits including:
- Improved Cosmetics: A lost tooth can look and feel embarrassing and lower your confidence. Dental bridges cover gaps and blend in with your natural teeth.
- Better Function: Each tooth play an integral part in your mouth, so even losing one of them can affect functions like eating and speaking. Bridges fill in the gap and allow you, with practice, to chew and speak naturally.
- Restrained Teeth: Your teeth naturally move and adjust in your mouth. However, when you lose a tooth, your teeth shift to fill the gap. Bridges prevent this by keeping your teeth in their original positions, preventing uneven bite issues and even facial deformation.
