Dental treatment can work wonders with damaged teeth, but sometimes there are occasions where a tooth is so badly damaged or decayed that saving it is simply not possible. Gaps between teeth can be hugely detrimental to your confidence and self-esteem, and depending on where the gap is located, it can even have a negative impact on the functionality of your other teeth and the overall use of your mouth. This is due to the fact that after time, your remaining teeth can take advantage of the space to shift around slightly, causing misalignment and a range of other associated dental problems.
Thankfully you don’t have to live with gaps any longer. Dental bridges work to fill this gap where the missing tooth would have been with a false tooth and also holding the remaining teeth either side in place so that they don’t shift into the space.
Vero Dental Spa explains the four main varieties of dental bridges currently available; traditional, cantilever, Maryland/resin bonded, and implant-supported.
