Missing teeth create gaps that can be unsightly and embarrassing. They can also irritate the mouth, unease in your bite while increasing mental and emotional distress. At Anderson Dental, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile, ability to speak and chew, as well as prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of place. These cosmetic restorations will not only benefit your appearance, but they'll give your oral health an additional boost. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Jon Anderson, Dr. Brad Anderson, or Dr. Breding in our Fargo, ND, office today to get started.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge comes in different types. At Anderson Dental, our dentist will determine the kind that's best for your particular situation after performing an oral examination and taking X-rays. A dental bridge is a fixed artificial tooth that's supported by two crowns on each side to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. It's also considered an alternative to dental implants.

Benefits of a Dental Bridge

One or multiple teeth can devastate self-esteem and make you self-conscious about how others perceive you. One of the benefits of a dental bridge is that the procedure is non-surgical and involves minimal recovery time. They can also last a long time with proper at-home care and annual cleanings in our Fargo, ND, office. A dental bridge is also safe, comfortable, and has a durable reputation. Another advantage is that they prevent further oral problems from developing.

If you're tired of frowning, missing out on your favorite foods, and looking for a solution, consider treatment. You may be a candidate for a dental bridge, and Dr. Jon Anderson or Dr. Brad Anderson will confirm this during your initial visit.

Is your smile missing teeth? With a dental bridge, your dentist can make your dream smile a reality. A bridge is a dental prosthesis that is used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Led by Dr. Breding, Dr. Jon Anderson, and Dr. Brad Anderson, Anderson Dental (located in Fargo, ND) offers full-service, state-of-the-art dental care to the patients they serve. Read on to find out how a dental bridge can help your smile.

1. It will enhance your smile. Missing teeth can ruin a beautiful smile. A dental bridge can improve the appearance of your smile. A fixed bridge is made up of two dental crowns for the teeth on the sides of the gap and one or more artificial teeth in between. Bridges are designed to look like your original teeth so you can be confident in your smile.

2. It will prevent teeth shifting. If missing teeth are not replaced, the neighboring teeth will begin to shift out of alignment. Dental plaque can build up in the spaces created by the shifting teeth. Over time, this may cause oral health problems, such as cavities or gum disease. A dental bridge can prevent your teeth from shifting into the spaces left by your missing teeth.

3. It will make eating easier. Your teeth are designed to help you break down food. When you have missing teeth, eating becomes difficult. Dental bridges function like natural teeth. A dental bridge will improve your ability to chew food.

4. It can improve your speech. The absence of just one tooth can affect your speech. When teeth are missing, you may find yourself slurring or mumbling words. A dental bridge can improve your clarity speech. Unlike conventional dentures, a fixed dental bridge will not slip out of place when you speak.
