Dental Bridges in Irving TX
If you are considering dental bridges in Irving, TX for your missing or damaged teeth, then Irving Family Dental has you covered! Made of natural, tooth-colored materials, a dental bridge looks like a real tooth would. Cosmetic dental bridges are used to fill in a missing or badly decayed tooth by “bridging” the gap of the surrounding teeth. The bridge would consist of a pontic (tooth filler) and be fitted to the two adjacent teeth or abutments surrounding the missing tooth using dental crowns.
A patient can incur negative effects by leaving the missing tooth untreated. Leaving spaces in the mouth can cause multiple teeth to shift and move which can cause occlusion (biting problems) and/or TMJ jaw issues. Periodontal problems (gum disease) can also occur at the site of the missing and surrounding teeth. Having a dentist treat a missing or badly decayed tooth is critical to preventing further complications.
