While it sounds far-fetched, dental bridges can help your face retain its appearance when teeth go missing. Our teeth affect more than just the look of our smiles. When one or more goes missing, changes in our mouths and even our faces can come because of their absence.
Our facial muscles need the teeth to be present so they can be held up. Without the support of the teeth, the muscles can sag, which can significantly alter your appearance. Those areas of your face can droop, and you can look somewhat older than you actually are.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth. This brings back support to the facial muscles and helps them stay up, so your face continues to look the way it should. Bridges also help you chew food effectively again and restore the appearance of your smile.
Dental bridges can offer you many kinds of benefits. If you need to replace some teeth, you are welcome to discuss your options here at Golden West Dental Clinic in Rialto, California. Our dentist, Dr. Rosendo Garza, is happy to tell you more about our bridges and other restoration options to help you make the decision that suits your smile’s needs.
