Not only does every single tooth make a difference when speaking and chewing food, all of your teeth play a critical role in maintaining proper tooth alignment. If you do happen to lose a tooth, replacing them is critical to maintain proper function of your mouth. Luckily, there are options for correcting the loss of a tooth.


When a tooth is missing, a bridge can be a good choice for replacing it.  In a bridge, and artificial tooth is connected on each end to crowns.  The crowns are placed over the neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place.

Why are bridges important?

The most important aspect of getting a bridge is your own dental health. Your teeth were designed to work together and complement each other. With missing teeth, harmful disorders might emerge as stress can be placed on the gums and oral tissues not to forget that missing teeth cause shifting teeth.
