Aside from the discomfort that can come with a missing tooth, there are other problems that result. To start with, the tooth that was there acted as a placeholder keeping other teeth from shifting. Without that tooth the surrounding teeth may move affecting your visible smile as well as causing the gums and neighboring teeth to become far more susceptible to decay and gum disease.
A dental bridge is a false tooth that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can do many things, including reducing your risk of gum disease, help to correct minor bite issues and can even improve your speech and smile. The false tooth acts as place holder to avoid the shifting of other teeth, improve and maintain your oral health as well as protect the appearance of your smile.
