Dental bridges help Farmington Hills residents recapture their best smile
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Your smile is likely the first impression one receives when meeting you for the first time; therefore, you want to put your best smile on display. Unfortunately, studies have shown that when there are gaps between teeth or several teeth are missing, you may not be communicating the confidence you hoped to convey. Fortunately, a dental bridge may just be the ideal solution to perfect your smile.
When does one need a Dental Bridge?Adult tooth loss, whether from accident or illness, can adversely affect our oral health; change the shape of our face; and affect our ability to speak clearly or chew properly. Over time, these changes to our appearance and functionality can have a detrimental effect on our mental health and self-esteem. Dental bridges are used to fill the space where a tooth or several teeth are missing. Most patients benefit from:
- Restored facial symmetry
- Enhanced comfort when eating or chewing
- Improved speech
- Regain a full range of oral functions
- Renewed confidence
Is a Dental Bridge right for you?Determining whether a patient is a viable candidate for a dental bridge is based predominantly on the number of missing teeth and the health of the patients’ teeth and gums. An ideal candidate, in most cases, is missing a small group of teeth in one area of the mouth. Any oral health issues should be resolved prior to proceeding with the dental bridge.
