Bridging the Gap with Dental Bridges

dentist suppliesTeeth are very important to our appearance and missing teeth can be a detriment to one’s self esteem. Not only does a missing tooth affect your smile, it can cause a change in your bite, can shift your other teeth, cause TMJ, speech impediments, and increase your risk for periodontal disease. Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and there are several types that can be used.

Bridges are made based upon the shape of the surrounding teeth. Crowns are then placed over them and attached to an artificial tooth. Before deciding on how to approach dental bridges, your dentist will need to have a consultation to see what will work best for you. Your gums and other teeth need to be in good health for you to even be a candidate. If the surrounding teeth are badly broken as well, the dentist will need to rebuild them so they can be a strong support for the missing tooth.

In order to prolong the life of the restoration, you will need to take excellent care of your teeth and gums with dental hygiene products. You will also be given a special bridge floss threader so you can easily floss your teeth without doing any damage to the bridge.

All crown and bridge products, as well as other dentist supplies can be purchased at wholesale prices from Dealon Dental.
