Dental Bridges from Smile Moore Dentistry

What Are Bridges?

A dental bridge is used to replace one or multiple teeth. Bridges are anchored on both sides by your existing teeth and are an ideal solution when there are multiple teeth missing in a row. Here at Smile Moore Dentistry, we are dedicated to finding the right dental solution for your needs and desires. Whether the best option is a dental bridge or if you are in need of a dental crown, we will help you sort through all of your options. We want you to be well-informed and confident in the decision you make, so we will discuss all the pros and cons of each procedure and help you explore your options. Give us the opportunity to improve your smile and dental health today!

Who Needs Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are usually recommended to people with multiple missing teeth in a row. Because a dental bridge can span the space of multiple missing teeth, they are a great, one-time option that provides a semi-permanent solution. You may be a good candidate for a dental bridge if you have:

  • Missing Teeth from Tooth Decay – Tooth decay is a very common cause of tooth loss. Assuming you have healthy, strong teeth on either side of your missing teeth, you could be a good candidate for a dental bridge.
  • Missing Teeth from Gum Disease – Gum disease is another common cause of tooth loss and can be addressed with a bridge.
  • Missing Teeth from Injuries – If you have been in an accident and some of your teeth were knocked out or damaged, you may benefit from a dental bridge.

You may be wondering what can happen if you leave the gaps from missing teeth untreated. This is not advisable, as the remaining teeth on either side can start to shift into the empty spaces. This can make it difficult to chew and can cause bite problems, as well as pain in your jaws. You will also have to be extra-vigilant that the gums in the empty spaces stay clean and don’t get infected.
