Las Vegas Dental Bridges
As the teeth shift in place, you might experience issues with TMJ, a temporomandibular joint disorder. Your smile might also change in appearance in a noticeable way. Additionally, the loss of a tooth and failure to replace it can increase your chances of experience periodontal disease. Depending on the location of the missing tooth, you might also develop a speech impediment that makes it more difficult for people to understand what you are saying.
If you are missing a single tooth and prefer not to get a dental implant, you can choose to get a bridge instead. Dental bridges are also available for individuals who are missing more than one tooth.

What Are Fixed Dental Bridges?
The resin-bonded bridge is usually used to replace missing teeth in the front of the mouth. It can only be used if the patient has healthy gums and the remaining teeth in the front of the mouth are relatively free of dental fillings. The resin-bonded bridge is a less invasive process since the adjacent teeth do not require as much preparation to make them suitable for attaching the bridge.

The Procedure Used for Dental Bridges
The dentist orders the fabrication of your bridge once the final impression is taken. Your choice of materials may be determined by your dental insurance and what it covers. Your dentist will fit you with a temporary bridge to wear while you are waiting for the permanent one to be completed.
