If you are missing one or more teeth, it’s important to replace those teeth. If you don’t, your other teeth will eventually shift. When your teeth change position in this way, it can have a negative impact on your bite and may make chewing food more difficult. Fortunately, there are several different alternatives for replacing missing teeth. One popular method is a dental bridge. At Forever Smiles, we are pleased to offer dental bridges as one of many services.
What You Should Know about Dental Bridges
A bridge is a dental prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Bridges typically fit over natural teeth, which hold the bridge in place. There are two types of dental bridges: “fixed” bridges, or those that cannot be removed by the patient; and removable bridges. These sturdy dental appliances are very strong and usually last for many years.

Bridges are often an excellent choice for people who are missing one or more teeth, who want to fix an unattractive smile, or people who have large gaps in between existing teeth.
Are You a Candidate for a Dental Bridge?
There’s one thing that is absolutely certain: if you are missing one or more teeth, it’s important to choose a means to replace those teeth. If you don’t, your other teeth will shift, and that can create a myriad of other problems. A dental bridge is only one way to replace teeth. There are other options as well. To determine whether or not you are a good candidate for a dental bridge, you should meet with your dentist and discuss the alternatives. We can assess your dental health and personal habits, and help you decide which choice is best for you.
