Traditional bridges can greatly benefit your oral health and dental function. With your bridge in place, you will be able to enjoy a varied diet, without many restrictions. You may find that your speech is clearer, as well. Furthermore, your bridge can prevent dental misalignment, which can occur after tooth loss. Of course, the bridge can also improve your appearance and self-confidence by completing your smile.
Implant-supported bridges offer additional benefits. Not only are they more secure, but they will not affect your nearby teeth or require alteration. Most importantly, the dental implants will stimulate tissue regeneration. After tooth loss, the jawbone does not receive stimulation, which can result in atrophy. Serving the role of tooth roots, implant posts can prevent your jawbone from shrinking, preserving your appearance and helping you to avoid further tooth loss. As such, an implant-supported bridge can help to protect your smile for life.
