Are you missing one or more teeth and trying to decide what is the best option for your specific circumstances? At Serene Oaks Dental, bridges provide Minneapolis area residents with a viable option for addressing their concerns without an invasive procedure. When missing one or even several teeth, an individual can be adversely affected in various ways such as:
1. Difficulty in chewing food
2. Hinderance of the ability to speak clearly and understandably
3. Self-consciousness about the appearance of the face and smile
4. Other teeth in the mouth being affected, resulting in problems with shifting, crooked teeth and future dental issues
Many prefer the conservative dental option of bridges. A bridge is a custom device that replaces one or more missing teeth. The empty spaces caused by missing teeth are filled with artificial, natural looking teeth. These replacement teeth are anchored to the neighboring teeth, literally bridging the gap where one or more teeth may have been.
A bridge helps by maintaining the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges also protect your jaw bone, chewing function, and the position of your remaining teeth and smile
At Serene Oaks Dental, Dr. Gesica Horn and her team provide amazing cosmetic dentistry choices for those who are missing one or more teeth, including the option of dental bridges. Minneapolis area residents that would like to learn more about these dental options can contact Serene Oaks Dental today and book a consultation.
