The practice of William Forero DMD, PA provides dental bridges to help close the gaps in your smile and restore your teeth to full function and appearance. Dental bridges are restorations that literally “bridge” the empty spaces between your teeth. Dr. Forero may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing one or more teeth in a row. Please call us at 954-752-4901 to schedule your appointment with one of our experienced dentists and learn more about dental bridges in Coral Springs, Florida.
A dental bridge may be recommended if you are missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease, bone deterioration, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
While dental bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your dental bridges is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease or decay. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste at least two times a day, and by flossing daily. Also, please visit our dentists and hygienists regularly for dental checkups and professional cleanings. To prevent damage to your dental bridge, avoid chewing hard foods, ice, or other hard objects.
