Smart Smile Basics: Dental Bridges

Posted .

Dental damage arising from severely damaged teeth may be too great to repair. If a tooth has been severely damaged, an extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage to your mouth. In addition, if you already have lost or missing teeth, it is important to start thinking about a tooth replacement. Effective forms of tooth replacements include dental bridges.

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option that fills in the missing gaps in your mouth by connecting to nearby or neighboring teeth. A dental bridge is extremely durable and permanent. With the proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last a lifetime.

Our porcelain fixed dental bridges can help restore your smile and prevent tooth damage that can occur if teeth are missing. In addition, dental bridges can improve your ability to chew food, and can improve your speech, bite stability, and your overall oral health care. For additional information about dental bridges, speak with your dentist to schedule an oral examination.

Don’t wait until it’s too late for a tooth replacement. If you would like to know if you need a porcelain fixed dental bridge, please book an oral exam with Dr. Victor J. Dongo and our team at Victor J. Dongo, DMD, PA at our dentist office in Hialeah Gardens, Florida, by calling us at (305) 512-3700. We look forward to helping you soon!
