5 Reasons to Consider Dental Bridges

If you are looking for a way to replace missing teeth, there are several good reasons to consider dental bridges. Of course we will do an examination, and take x-rays to make sure that you are a good candidate for a bridge, but most people are. Here are some of the reasons that a bridge can be a good choice.

  1. A Dental Bridge Is Stable

You could, of course, have dentures made, but one of the main reasons to consider a dental bridge is stability. Dentures, of course, are meant to come out, and that means that they could become loose. That does not usually happen, thanks to modern imaging and manufacturing methods, but it is still not unheard of. If you would prefer not to take the risk, the bridge is a better option.

  1. A Dental Bridge Is Durable

Provided that you take good care of your bridge, by practicing good oral hygiene the same way you always have, and getting regular cleanings, your bridge will last a long time. Durability and ease of care are more good reasons to consider a dental bridge.

  1. A Dental Bridge Is Convenient

If you are busy, and most of us are these days, you probably do not want to have to deal with taking dentures out, soaking them, and using a special solution to clean them. If you travel, you have to remember to pack all the supplies that go hand-in-hand with denture care. With a dental bridge, you do not have to worry about any of these concerns.

  1. A Dental Bridge Feels Natural

Because it is fixed permanently in place, you should find little, if any, difference between the feel and function of your natural teeth and that of your bridge. This is one of the main reasons to consider dental bridges over dentures.

  1. A Dental Bridge Looks Good

Not only will your dental bridge feel like your own teeth, it will look totally natural, blending in perfectly with your adjacent teeth. In fact, if you don’t tell anyone that you are wearing a bridge, there is no reason for anyone to know.
