Lost teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, as well create issues that affect your oral health. When you lose a tooth, there is a gap in your smile that allows the surrounding teeth shift, putting you at risk of tooth decay and damage and other problems. Our team at Jason Rountree Family Dentistry is eager to help you restore a missing tooth with the tooth replacement option best suited to you. To find out if you might benefit from a dental bridge, we invite you to consider some aspects of your oral health.
You may already be aware that dental bridges are very common dental restorations, and this is because they offer a very similar appearance and feel to that of the lost tooth. In fact, you can speak clearly and chew well after receiving a dental bridge.
Because not everyone has the oral health requirements for a dental bridge to be successful. There are some things to keep in mind. Dental bridges often aren’t recommended to replace more than three teeth, and they require healthy teeth and gums because they must be anchored to the teeth on both sides to remain stable .
Weakened teeth and gums may require you to seek a different treatment instead of a dental bridge. While you may not be aware that you have any dental problems, our dentist can perform an examination of your teeth and mouth as the first step to placing a dental bridge.
You can enjoy a full smile for a decade or more with a dental bridge, as long as you take the proper care of it, including brushing and flossing it daily. Contact Jason Rountree Family Dentistry at 559-897-3322 today if you would like to learn more about dental bridges in Kingsburg, California.
