If there is an area in your mouth where you have one or two missing teeth, then you know how hard it can be to chew food. In some cases, speaking could become difficult and you could find your words slur or sound muffled. The structure of your teeth is important, not only for chewing and speaking but for the jawbone and gums as well. Over time, having a void in your teeth could cause alignment issues. That is why in many cases a dental bridge is ideal when it comes to restoring your smile.
A dental bridge closes the void in your teeth and still appears natural like your surrounding teeth. The process of being fitted for a dental bridge is an easy two-step procedure.
The first step is when your dentist, Dr. Jason Roe, creates a pair of abutments out of the two closest teeth. This will later work as an anchor to your dental bridge and help keep it tightly in place. Once that is done, an impression of the area and your bite will be needed to create your dental bridge.
Once your dental bridge is customized and created, your dental bridge will be cemented into place. With proper care and cleaning your dental bridge can last for several years to come, restoring your smile.
