If you are missing a tooth and it is causing you discomfort when you chew, a dental bridge can be exactly what you need to keep your smile intact while providing cosmetic relief. It can be frustrating to lose one tooth and have it not only affect your smile, but cause discomfort and interfere with your daily life.
Why a Dental Bridge?
The cosmetic effect of a dental bridge is obvious: it fills the gap where your tooth used to be, restoring your smile to what it was before losing your tooth. But there are other reasons to have a dentist fit you with a bridge. If you work in a competitive business environment such as Perth, you want to look your best.
If you don’t have all of your teeth, you must find a cosmetic solution such as a dental bridge. Not only will it keep others from judging you by your appearance, it will keep your confidence at an appropriate level. Most people who lose a front tooth become self-conscious when they are around other people. Often, someone who loses a front tooth doesn’t smile in social situations to avoid showing the gap.
Losing a tooth can cause structural damage to your mouth, too. This can cause problems with chewing or even speaking. Worse yet, if you lose even one tooth, others are able to move around in your mouth. This can make your other teeth crooked, causing more damage to the structure of your teeth. This in turn causes more problems in chewing and more cosmetic difficulty.
