5 Core Benefits of Dental Bridges By Dr. Jose Valenzuela on May 01, 2022

A traditional bridge supports an artificial tooth by capping the natural teeth on either side of the gap. An implant-supported bridge attaches to dental implants set in your jawbone.

Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center serves the communities of Yuma, Los Algodones, and Mexicali as well as international patients looking to save money on dental work. Curious if a dental bridge is the best option for your smile? Consider these five benefits of dental bridges.

Improved Function

Tooth loss can make eating certain foods difficult and even painful. Dental bridges restore your ability to bite and chew foods that you used to eat with ease.

Bridges also improve your ability to speak because your teeth are an important part of how your mouth forms words and sounds. Depending on which teeth have been lost, your ability to produce speech can be impeded by missing teeth. Dental bridges improve both the stability of your teeth and your overall comfort.

Better Oral Health

The spaces left by missing teeth can become a place where bacteria reside. Bad bacteria in your mouth increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to additional tooth loss in the future. Dental bridges fill in the gaps where bacteria would otherwise thrive. A dental bridge will also enable you to eat a varied and healthy diet, so you can maintain your overall health.

Enhanced Appearance

Porcelain bridges not only fill in the gaps from missing teeth but also come in a full spectrum of shades so they can match the rest of your teeth perfectly. By filling the gap in your smile, the dental bridge will improve both your smile and confidence, as well as support your natural facial structure.

Avoid Tooth Movement

The teeth surrounding a tooth gap will start to shift into the empty space as long as your teeth are not replaced. The shifting of the teeth can cause a number of oral health complications like new spaces between your teeth, crooked teeth, and loose teeth. All of these complications may lead to the need for more extensive dental work in the future.

By choosing a dental bridge sooner rather than later, you could save lots of time and money.

Prevent Jawbone Recession

When missing teeth are not replaced, there is no stimulation of the jawbone. This causes the jawbone to become gradually weaker until the body reabsorbs the inactive bone causing changes in facial shape.

Implant-supported bridges stimulate the jawbone, helping to prevent bone loss and maintain the structure of your face.
