Can missing teeth affect my dental health?

One or more missing teeth may be posing a danger to the health and longevity of your smile. Spaces between teeth can create a bite imbalance and lead to neuromuscular problems. Gaps may also cause your remaining teeth to shift out of place. Teeth provide support for the underlying bone, so missing teeth can eventually cause bone deterioration. In addition, living with missing teeth can make it uncomfortable or awkward to chew and may affect speech in some cases.

Will people be able to tell I have a dental bridge?

At the office of Dr. B.J. Henderson, we use state-of-the-art technology and advanced dental materials to ensure a very natural result for each dental bridge. We take our time to make sure your bridge is carefully crafted and shaded to match your existing enamel. Because we are a metal-free cosmetic dentistry practice, there are no obvious metal pieces to give away your secret.

Will my dental bridge need to be replaced in the future?

Dental bridges are permanent solutions to tooth loss and can last 10 years or more if they are done well. We use high quality materials and our lab work is truly incomparable.

What can I do to keep my dental bridge in good shape?

Treat your new dental bridge as you do your natural teeth and make sure to keep up with brushing and flossing. Be careful to clean all surfaces thoroughly and remove bacteria from hard-to-reach places (an electric toothbrush can help you remove all the food particles). Do not skip dental checkups and report any signs of pain or discomfort to Dr. Henderson right away.

What are the alternatives to dental bridges?

Dental implants are another permanent way to replace missing teeth. You can ask Dr. Henderson about the available options, and he will break down the benefits of each to help you decide.
