Custom Dental Bridges in Wichita, KS
If you have lost teeth, it is important to replace them in order to continue chewing and speaking with ease. Missing teeth can make these activities difficult and may also alter the alignment of your surrounding teeth. Missing teeth have also been linked to an increased risk of gum disease. Missing teeth should be replaced. There are several options to replace missing teeth. One of these is a dental bridge from Wichita Family Dental.
Dental Bridge Options
A dental bridge literally bridges the gap between teeth where one or more may be missing. It attaches artificial teeth to the nearby natural teeth. Bridges may be removable or permanently attached (called a fixed partial denture). Removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned, but fixed bridges are more stable. Dental bridges can be made from porcelain, gold alloy, non-precious alloy, or a combination of these materials. A dental bridge from Wichita Family Dental will support your lips and cheeks, helping you maintain your appearance.
