How a Dental Bridge Can Keep Your Mouth from Hurting
Posted on 6/21/2021 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Dental bridges fill the gap created as a result of missing teeth. Dental bridges are made up of several crowns of teeth on both sides of your dental gap. The anchoring for the teeth are also known as abutments. For stability, dental bridges are supported by implants or natural teeth. Losing a tooth can put your mouth at risk of various dental infections. This underlines the importance of getting a replacement through dental appliances like bridges. Furthermore, you are less likely to suffer dental problems with dental bridges installed. This is because they keep your mouth from getting hurt in various ways.
How Dental Bridges Keep Your Mouth in Good Condition
Dental bridges have several benefits for your mouth. By eliminating the missing tooth's space, dental bridges offer an excellent cosmetic solution that creates a beautiful, uniform smile. Lack of one or several teeth can hurt your mouth significantly. You can experience pain when chewing or biting into food because your gum is exposed. However, when you fill the gap with dental bridges, you will get rid of the pain and challenges you experience when eating.
Losing a tooth can also impact your speech, making it difficult to interact with others and consequently making your social life challenging. Filling the gap with dental bridges will allow you to speak normally, making things better for you. When you lose one or several teeth, you leave your mouth vulnerable to various dental infections. For instance, you could suffer from gum disease due to the exposed gums. You can also develop other conditions like Gingivitis and Periodontal disease. As a result, your oral health will be affected, hurting your mouth significantly. However, with dental bridges, you will reduce the risk of developing these conditions.
