Having to live your life with missing teeth, be it one or multiple, can be incredibly distressing. Not only does it have a direct, adverse effect on your smile, but it can also excessively challenging to perform simple tasks such as talking, chewing and so on. Fortunately, missing teeth do not have to be a permanent blemish to your appearance. An ideal, yet cost-efficient, way to solve this problem is via dental bridges.
The importance of having healthy teeth cannot be overstated. If you don't practice proper oral health, your teeth can gradually decay and detach from your gums. As a result, having missing teeth affects more than just your smile. Gaps in the teeth lead to chewing complications, accumulation of plaque and gum diseases.
There are several oral health conditions that may cause you to be at risk of tooth loss. If you're diagnosed with any of the following conditions, consult a family dentist to ensure that you don't end up loosing some of your teeth.
The positive and lasting implications of a bright smile are undeniable. For a good number of people, a bright, white smile denotes radiance, good health and even warmth!
