Bridges & Dentures to Recover from Tooth Loss

Because tooth loss most notably affects your smile’s appearance, you might consider replacing them a cosmetic issue. While custom bridges and dentures do help rebuild your smile’s appearance and your confidence in it, the consequences of tooth loss make replacing lost teeth a significant functional matter. Modern dental bridges and dentures are crafted with the dual purposes of restoring your bite’s ability to function properly while also rebuilding the full, healthy, and attractive appearance of your smile.

The Significance of Replacing Lost Teeth

In addition to how your smile looks, a full set of teeth is also important to how well your bite functions. Proper balance allows your teeth to distribute the pressure of your bite evenly among themselves, minimizing the risks of tooth wear and damage. It also allows your jaw muscles and joints to operate constantly without overtaxing or injuring themselves. By replacing your lost teeth with a dental bridge or denture, you can restore the balance that your bite relies on and improve the long-term state of your oral health in the process.
