The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons reports that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth. Bridges provide Columbus Ohio residents with a viable option to address the different issues encountered from missing teeth.
A bridge is a custom device that replaces one or more missing teeth. The empty spaces caused by missing teeth are filled with artificial, natural looking teeth. These replacement teeth are anchored to the neighboring teeth, literally bridging the gap where one or more teeth may have been. How does a modern, metal-free dental bridge provided by Dr. Schindler rectify these oral health issues?
1. Restored Chewing Ability—A missing tooth can hinder ability to chew certain kinds of food without discomfort or difficulty. Bridges regain the ability to enjoy all kinds of food.
2. Improved Self-Esteem—Tooth loss can affect the physical appearance of the face, causing bunching of the skin and adding years to the look of an individual, along with less than ideal smiles. Bridges restore the facial shape, add to a more youthful appearance and beautify a grin.
3. Clear Speech—Empty spaces in the mouth can make speech difficult to understand and hinder the ability to speak clearly. Bridges promote the ability to converse freely and clearly.
4. Improved Oral Health—Gaps caused by missing teeth can lead to shifting of the remaining teeth and problems with jaw alignment. Bridges fill those empty spaces and keep the other teeth in their proper place.
At Schindler Dentistry, all of your dental needs will be addressed skillfully and compassionately. With dental options for tooth loss including metal-free dentures, dental implants and metal-free bridges, Columbus Ohio residents have every reason to smile.
