Sometimes, a gap in the mouth can come across as sexy in Surrey when a tooth goes missing, it can also be quite harmless to the general health of the mouth- depending on the nature that the tooth went missing in the first place. But if it was lost through an accidental cause, it can leave the rest of the surrounding teeth suffering from a little bit of shock and awe, and in this case, you should definitely consider getting the tooth replaced to ensure that you maintain the health of your teeth that remain and your gums as well. You wouldn’t go wrong if you opted for a dental bridge for this is a tried and tested method of plugging an opening. There are generally a few that have always been around and have proven themselves to work with precision, but since the development of the mini-implant, it has taken the longevity of bridges to a different level as they keep the fitting true in the mouth. A bridge is a cheap option but it works very well and keeps your mouth working efficiently and healthy. The general shelf life is around 15 years, depending on how you look after it, and you will have to look after it as well, for bridges are notoriously hard to clean and look after- get all the finite details right however and you’ll be smiling until Christmas.
