When a tooth is missing, people hide their smile or may constantly worry about their speaking voice.
"Does the gap show when I smile?"
"Is the letter “S” too pronounced when I speak?" Yes, a missing tooth or teeth can alter your speaking voice.
Other ways a missing tooth or teeth influence your life
- Limited dietary options
- The possibility of surrounding teeth shifting toward the empty socket
- Wear and tear on surrounding teeth forced to do all the chewing
- Changes to your facial profile
At Buxton Family Dental, we design dental bridges that make eating easy, restore your smile, and give you back your confidence.
Dental bridges help with the following:
- Fill in the space or spaces created by a missing tooth or teeth
- Prevent surrounding teeth from drifting into the empty socket
- Provide a fixed alternative to removable partial dentures
- Allow optimal chewing
Unlike dentures or partial dentures, a dental bridge attaches to neighboring teeth. This allows for stability and prevents slippage. A dental implant for further stability is also an option—attaching your bridge to an implant, in other words.
