Missing teeth can be embarrassing and frustrating.
Having a gap between your teeth can make you want to hide your smile instead of sharing it with the people in your life. That empty space also can make it difficult to bite and chew foods that you want to eat.
You don’t have to live with the frustration. You can replace what you’ve lost, eat what you love again, and boost your self-confidence with a dental bridge. To find out how to get one, start by contacting New Albany Implants.

It Can Get Worse
We don’t want to get you down, but you should expect your problems to get worse if you don’t replace your missing teeth.
Bone loss is one of the most common problems for people who are missing teeth. This can change the shape of your face, causing you to have more wrinkles and to look older than you really are.
To complicate your problems, your remaining healthy teeth can “drift” when there is a gap in your mouth. This can make it more difficult to bite and chew. That’s in addition to the effect your shifting teeth have on the appearance of your smile.
Together, these problems also make your more likely to lose more teeth.
In other words, the sooner you act, the more problems you can avoid.
New Teeth Are About More Than Your Smile
Many people will think to get a bridge to replace their missing teeth. It’s true that a traditional bridge will fill the gap between your smile, and it can prevent drifting from happening.
To get this kind of bridge, however, you need to grind down your healthy teeth to support it. When that bridge wears out, you’ll have to grind down more teeth to replace it.
At the same time, you aren’t really doing anything to stop the bone loss since you haven’t replaced the roots of your teeth.
If you want to fix that issue and keep your healthy teeth intact, then you should get dental implants.
Implants were designed to replace the roots of lost teeth. When they are placed in your jaw, they anchor your bridge securely in your mouth. This restores the stimulation your roots once provided. That stops your bone loss in its tracks.
