When even one tooth is missing from your smile, the effects can be serious, and they can intrude on your daily life. You may find yourself increasingly frustrated by the way tooth loss intrudes on your meals, as it interferes with your ability to bite and chew food. You might find that the problem leaves you uncomfortable with your smile. What you might not realize is how the problem can lead to more trouble over time, unless you do something about it. If you want to avoid complications, talk to your New York, NY dentist about a dental bridge. You can receive a secure bridge that stays secure enough to help you bite and chew comfortably. Because the bridge is designed to act as a cosmetic replacement, you can also feel more confident about how you look after you receive it.

You Can Count On Your Dental Bridge To Address Smile Problems, And Functional Issues

A dental bridge features a pontic, or your replacement tooth, and a pair of dental crowns that are secured to abutment teeth, or the teeth surrounding the gap left by tooth loss. Because your restoration is made to fit in with your natural smile, you can feel comfortable with the way it looks when it is placed. You can also enjoy the way it makes biting and chewing easier, as you can count on it to stay secure thanks to the placement of your crowns.

Am I Doing Enough To Protect Myself Against Tooth Loss?

Did you know that your risk for tooth loss can rise when you have already lost a tooth? Because your teeth depend on their neighbors for part of their support, a gap can mean less stability, and more movement. Addressing tooth loss can help you reduce your risk. You can further reduce your risks by keeping up with smart oral care, and preventing gum disease.
