Dental Bridges Portland, OR
If your smile suffers as the result of missing one or more teeth, dental bridge treatment could make the ideal choice to help restore your oral health and return your confident, beautiful smile.
A dental bridge works to cover the gap created by missing teeth. A bridge consists of two or more dental crowns being placed on the teeth that neighbor the gap (referred to as the abutment teeth) in a patient's smile. A set of false teeth will anchor to the abutment teeth to create a bridge the covers the gap and restores the smile back to health.
A dental bridge procedure makes an ideal choice for patients who don't possess the necessary gum health or adequate bone structure needed for the placement of a dental implant.
Why Do I Need a Dental Bridge?
When a smile misses one or more teeth, it can impact your oral health in a variety of ways. A dental bridge can work to prevent any further damage from occurring to your oral health by:
- Restoring a smile back to health.
- Returning your ability to eat and chew like normal.
- Preventing you from slurring or mumbling words.
- Maintaining the shape of your face.
- Readjusting your bite so the force of the bite is properly distributed.
- Keeping your remaining teeth from moving out of position.
