Losing a tooth can affect the way you look, speak and how you eat. The gap or gaps left behind from the loss of a tooth can compromise a person’s chewing ability.
The missing tooth can put extra pressure on the teeth either side of the gap causing those teeth to lean into the gap, trapping food and causing further decay which can result in further tooth loss.
There are many different treatments that can fill in the gap of missing teeth and to improve the appearance of a smile and most importantly the function of the other teeth to prevent further damage that might have been caused.
A dental bridge, also known as a partial denture, will help prevent any further damage to the remaining teeth and gums.
There are 3 types of dental bridges:
Dental Bridges can be made from a combination of ceramic and metal or gold or full ceramic.
