Do you have missing teeth that hurt your confidence and affect the way you talk or chew? We know how embarrassing and frustrating it can feel to have teeth that are missing. You might hide your smile and have a hard time talking without sounding off. When you have missing teeth, a fixed bridge might be the right decision for you. Please give us a call right away. We would be glad to have you in for a free consultation.
Getting a Fixed Bridge
If you have several missing teeth in a row, fixed bridges might be the solution that you need. A dental bridge is meant to “bridge” the gap between missing teeth.
This is appropriate when you have lost teeth from an injury, tooth decay, etc. When you receive the bridge, you will have the bridge placed onto your jaw by two points where you will have implants. The crowns will be placed on the implants over the jaw.
Having a fixed bridge not only helps you improve your appearance and get rid of embarrassing gaps in your smile, but you will also be able to chew and talk easier. A lot of people bring up the fact that they can’t enjoy food as they used to as their chief complaint about having missing teeth. It can make it incredibly difficult to eat some foods that you used to really enjoy.
We would be glad to have you come in to meet with our Buffalo dentist to talk about getting fixed bridges. We never want to let money be the reason why you avoid seeing the dentist, so please know that there are options for you to finance the treatment. We want everyone to have the access to dental care that they need.
Can I Prevent Tooth Loss?
When you want to avoid losing teeth, there are some things that you can do to prevent your teeth from falling out. Proper dental hygiene is, of course, essential to keeping a healthy smile.
If you regularly floss, brush your teeth twice a day, do not eat sticky or sugary foods before bed, and use a fluoride mouthwash, you would be doing everything that you need to do to take care of your teeth at home. Using fluoride toothpaste can also help reduce your risk of losing teeth.
Seeing a dentist for checkup visits regularly can help you prevent issues or catch problems early on. When a dentist sees you once or twice a year, they can make sure that you do not have plaque or tartar build-up that will damage your teeth eventually resulting in the rotting away or having to be extracted.
