Did you know that 7 NHL players lost their teeth during the 2013 Season? Millions of Americans are losing their teeth everyday. Are you one of them? Don’t worry; bridgework is a great solution for your problem.
Tooth loss can be caused by poor oral hygiene, bad habits such as grinding your teeth, injuries from contact sports and accidents, and other trauma to your face and mouth. If you don’t brush and floss everyday, you are at risk of tooth decay and gum disease. This can lead to tooth loss. Eating food that contains a lot of sugar, carbohydrates and acid are bad for your teeth and gums. Poor habits like grinding, smoking and chewing cigarettes can damage your teeth and aggravate gum disease. Participating in contact sports without mouth guards can also lead to damaged teeth.
The good news is that you don’t have to be toothless. Dental bridges fill the gap left by one or more missing teeth. It can bring back your beautiful smile, restore your ability to speak and chew properly, maintain the shape of your face, distribute the forces in your bite evenly and prevent your teeth from moving.
Bridges can be made of porcelain, porcelain bonded to precious metal or all-metal dental bridges. Your Kennewick dentist will recommend the type of bridge that’s best suitable for you. He’ll also be the best person to talk to in case you’d want to explore other dental solutions for replacing and improving your teeth.
