Why Dental Bridges Are Just What the Dentist Ordered for Oral Health

Does missing teeth embarrass you? Learn how dental bridges can repair and restore your smile.

The Deal on Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are one of the fastest, easiest, and most affordable ways to replace missing teeth. These dental restorations fill in the gaps in your mouth from lost teeth with a “bridge” of replacement teeth. For secure placement, dental bridges are supported by the natural teeth surrounding them.

The Demand for Dental Bridges

Today, dental bridges have become popular with both patients and family dentistry specialists because they offer numerous dental and personal benefits. As a result, they are offered by most family dentistry practices. And dental bridges are more affordable than other dental restorations, but the final price depends on your needs and the location of the dentist. But an affordable dentist can help you keep costs to a minimum. Some of the benefits of dental bridges include:

  • Fully restoring your smile
  • Maintaining your proper facial structure and shape
  • Ensuring proper jaw alignment, which prevents other teeth from shifting
  • Making it easier to chew food
  • More natural speech
  • Lasting for many years with proper oral hygiene and regular care from a family dentistry specialist
  • More affordable than other dental restorations

Care and Cleaning of Dental Bridges

Surprisingly, simply following your healthy oral hygiene routine is all you need to keep dental bridges looking their best and lasting for years. Cleaning dental bridges simply calls for brushing and flossing at least twice a day. They also require regular check-ups and cleanings by an affordable dentist near you. By taking care of dental bridges, they can keep you smiling for many years.
