As a Los Angeles dentist, I often see patients

As a Los Angeles dentist, I often see patients with missing teeth who are embarrassed who show a full and confident smile, but don’t realize the other consequences of letting the gaps remain:

*Chewing becomes more difficult.
*The adjacent teeth will naturally lean in too close the gap, which will cause other teeth to move and result in misalignment.
*New areas are created that can trap food particles, resulting in fast growth of the bacteria that cause periodontal disease, ultimately detaching the gums from the teeth, so more may be lost.
*Teeth support the cheeks and lips—without them, the cheeks look hollow and lip thinner.
*Since teeth play an important role in speech, the loss makes it more difficult to pronounce words right.
The ideal solution for lost teeth is dental implants, permanently anchoring realistic replacements for each into the jaw. For those who aren’t able to have that done, an affordable and quicker alternative (weeks vs. months for implants) would be dental bridges. These can be made of porcelain, precious or non-precious metal alloys or plastic, depending on the budget and priorities of the patient.

Dental bridges can be fixed: one with an artificial tooth in the center is attached to the natural teeth or implants on either side of the gap and these can last many years. Alternatively, a bridge can be removable, known as a “partial,” which is not as strong, but easy to clean. In either case, the patient can have a temporary made while a top dental lab crafts a personalized, comfortable permanent bridge.

As a Los Angele dentist, I have found dental bridges to be the most popular way to stop further loss of teeth, prevent gum disease, and support the face, a cost-effective anti-aging program.
