Did you know that when you receive a dental bridge, it was designed to be part of your smile for the rest of your life? If you have lost one or more teeth and now have an incomplete smile, we invite you to consider a dental bridge to enhance your smile’s function and appearance.

A dental bridge is a dental appliance that acts as a tooth replacement treatment to fill empty spaces in your mouth. It is custom made to look and function like your normal teeth. While a denture is bonded to your gums and a dental implant is surgically attached to the jawbone, a dental bridge uses your surrounding teeth to create a durable hold to improve your smile and help you enjoy the foods you love.

When you lose teeth, speaking and chewing instantly become more difficult, and the surrounding teeth can begin to shift if the gums where the teeth were lost become destabilized. This occurs when bacteria and plaque build up in the empty space and are missed when you brush or floss. You are also at an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. But you can avoid all of these problems when you receive a dental bridge.

If you have lost a tooth or had one extracted, contact Nelson and Associates McKinney at 972-529-5111 to schedule a consultation with our dentist so that Dr. H Arthur Nelson can determine if you would benefit from all the perks of a dental bridge in McKinney, Texas.
