Do you have a missing tooth? Are you looking for a way to fill the gap between your teeth from a lost tooth? If so, a dental bridge might be right for you. There are many ways you can restore you smile if you suffer from a lost tooth. However, dental bridges are a common and popular option you can ask your dentist about.

Our doctor, Dr. Alberto A. Herrero, offers dental bridges as a form of tooth restoration. That is why our team at Alberto A. Herrero, DDS in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is excited to share with you some basic information on dental bridges, so you know if this restoration is right for you.

A dental bridge is also known as a fixed partial denture and is designed to attach to your neighboring teeth to restore one or more missing teeth. There are many ways a dental bridge can help you. Here is a list of benefits dental bridges have to offer:

– Improve the appearance of your teeth: Many people feel embarrassed having a lost tooth in their smile, making the appearance of their teeth an important consideration.
– Improve speech: When you lose a tooth in your smile, you can suffer from mishaps in communication.
– Help you eat: Without a tooth, some foods can be harder to eat and chew. Restoring a lost tooth can help you get the full function of your teeth again.
– Alignment concerns: If you suffer from a lost tooth, it is possible that your teeth could drift out of alignment, which could cause more problems for your oral health.
