Benefits of Dental Bridges

July 11, 2016

It is too bad that so many people overlook dental bridges as a workable and beneficial solution to some missing teeth. They are not false teeth and they are not implants. Instead, they are sort of hybrid, and the benefits of dental bridges are profound. Patients of Atrium Family Dental in New Lenox, IL can discuss any restorative dentistry needs they might have and find out if dental bridges are a workable solution.

So, what are the different benefits of dental bridges? They are actually extensive and include:

They prevent your natural teeth from shifting – While a crooked smile may not seem like a big issue, among the key benefits of dental bridges is that they force the teeth to hold their original positions. This keeps your bite in total alignment, preventing the development of issues like TMJ (a jaw issue that causes serious pain), bruxism (grinding of the teeth) or damages sustained with teeth begin to meet in a totally different way.

When you lose all or most of your teeth on an upper or lower jaw, it affects all parts of your life. While you may think it leads to some necessary changes in the diet and nothing more, losing many teeth causes most of us to feel poorly about our smile and even avoid social situations. It can make changes in how we talk and look and it does demand radical changes to the way we eat. Fortunately, Dr. Shane Sudman of Atrium Family Dental in New Lenox, IL offers our patients many options for dentures.

As part of our restorative dentistry, we provide patients with many advanced options that can include dentures of different kinds. We like to give you different choices to be certain that you get the solutions needed. For example, we offer partial dentures for patients who have lost several teeth but not the complete set of upper or lower teeth.

Do you any missing teeth? Do you suffer with a tooth that requires an extraction but you don’t want to have any gaps in your smile?

Modern dental bridges can help restore your smile and fill most gaps in your smile. Traditionally, dental bridges might have been cumbersome and uncomfortable, but today’s bridges are a nearly-natural and very natural-looking solution to missing teeth.

The most common type of dental bridge is known as the fixed bridge, which makes use of porcelain, ceramics and metals and usually involves the production of a false tooth which is anchored on adjacent teeth. As the name implies, a fixed bridge cannot be removed.
