Dental Bridges in 63119 Replace Multiple Missing Teeth
A dental bridge replaces one or more teeth. Unlike dentures, they are permanently attached to surrounding natural teeth or implants. While a bridge can last a lifetime, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene to ensure the longevity of the bridge. When you have a missing tooth or teeth, the gaps will eventually cause remaining teeth to shift towards the empty space causing a bad bite and potentially gum disease and TMJ disorders. It is crucial to seek treatment for missing teeth to avoid more problems in the future.

A bridge is certainly a viable option to replace teeth; however, technology has advanced to offer a more sophisticated option: dental implants. Implants allow us to replace missing teeth without damaging the surrounding supportive teeth needed for a bridge. For more information about dental implants visit our implants page or contact us.
