There are various reasons for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Your teeth are designed to perform multiple tasks such as chewing, speaking and even smiling. They all work together to make these tasks possible and effortless. However, if you lose some of your teeth, it is difficult to do these things. Even missing a back tooth may cause your mouth to shift, making your face look older.
Fortunately, replacing missing teeth can be such a breeze nowadays. There are many options your dentist may suggest, which will depend on your needs. One of the choices is dental bridges. They are sometimes called a fixed partial denture, but unlike partial dentures, dental bridgework is more stable and is also less invasive than dental implants.
