Losing a tooth starts a cycle of destruction within your mouth.
Fixed bridges are an excellent substitute for missing teeth.
In a normal, healthy mouth, each upper tooth contacts the corresponding lower tooth allowing for a well-balanced chewing function. Losing a tooth can quickly destroy this balance. When this balance is lost, the companion teeth lose support, causing drifting, shifting, abnormal decay and periodontal disease. The neighboring teeth are quickly subjected to these conditions and with each lost tooth, the problems are magnified and the destructive cycle continues.
Bridges are non-removable and are most commonly made of porcelain and gold. A fixed bridge will not only replace missing teeth, it will also help create a normal bite, eliminate over eruption of opposing teeth, prevent the tilting of adjacent teeth and inhibit and slow the onset of periodontal disease. Very importantly, fixed bridges will enable you to chew your food properly, making eating much more comfortable..
