Missing teeth will not only make it harder to smile with confidence but also affect your ability to speak, bite down, and chew your food properly.

Both dentures and bridges serve the same purpose. They replace missing teeth and restore your oral health. But, they do it in different ways.
Contacting a dentist near you can help you determine which oral restoration solution fits your needs best.
