Fixed Dental Bridges in Rockford, IL
A dental bridge is a method for replacing one or more missing teeth. Bridges are a semi-permanent option, depending on the type of bridge chosen for your specific needs. Implant supported bridges last the longest while bridges attached via clasps or bonding will generally need to be reset after five or ten years.
Missing teeth in the mouth can cause a variety of additional issues if not addressed in addition to making a person feel self-conscious. Dental Bridges are ideal for helping too boost your confidence and make you smile more while also helping to ensure the overall health of your mouth.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
- Stability – traditional dentures can be dislodged a lot easier than fixed bridges, which stay in place better. It allows you to focus on the things that matter such as eating, having conversations, and laughing, instead of worrying about your teeth.
- Distribution of Stress – they greatly help to distribute the force needed for chewing and eating, which means other teeth will not have to take on more stress than they normally would.
- Natural Look – Brides can be made to match the color, shape, and position of the teeth they are replacing, so there will not be a large transformation when the bridge is put in place.
- Preventing Bone Loss – Gaps in the mouth can cause the jawbone to recess and start to fail to support the remaining teeth. Dental bridges supported by dental implants can help stimulate the bone underneath and prevent the bone from deteriorating.
