Did you recently lose a tooth or a few of them due to gum disease or another dental issue? Do you have an extraction scheduled soon? If so, you may be worried about how your smile will look and function after the loss of a tooth, much less several. Having an incomplete smile can make it difficult to enjoy mealtimes, or even time chatting with friends. Fortunately, modern prosthetic dentistry provides a number of ways to address tooth loss, and to complete the smile, both cosmetically and functionally. Dental bridges supported by dental implants are one great option, especially if you need to address the loss of several teeth.
