What makes someone a good candidate for a dental bridge?

If you have a missing tooth and the neighboring teeth are healthy and strong, you are a good candidate for a dental bridge. It’s important to replace your missing tooth to keep the surrounding teeth from drifting into the empty space, and it’s important that the surrounding teeth are healthy and strong because they will anchor the dental bridge in place.

What can a dental bridge do for me?

A dental bridge can do many things for you. In fact, it can first replace your teeth and give you a complete smile. Second, it can give you a healthy and functional mouth. Third, it can boost your self-esteem and self-confidence. Fourth, it can make eating and talking easier. Fifth, it can help you love your smile.

Does placing a dental bridge hurt?
