Dr. Murray and Dr. Mazur can restore the teeth missing in your mouth when you come to Allure Dental for a dental bridge. Missing teeth can cause instability in your mouth as well as difficulty chewing and speaking. To resolve this problem, call our dentists to see if they can replace missing teeth with a dental bridge in Lafayette, Indiana.
Teeth need each other for support, and when one or more teeth are lost, the biting forces on the teeth next to the space will change, causing the teeth to shift. This shift can lead to further damage or more severe issues such as neuromuscular disorders. If you’ve lost teeth, placing a bridge can prevent a chain reaction of problems that could affect your entire mouth.
A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace one or more missing teeth and restore stability to your mouth. A bridge is created by placing crowns on the two teeth surrounding the open area and using pontics (or false teeth) between the crowns. Your bridge is carefully crafted in a dental laboratory to precisely fit your mouth and restore a healthy, balanced biting surface.
