Checking Into A Patients Mouth To See If They Need A Bridge at Kuras Dental Health Associates

When you are missing one or more teeth, it’s important to deal with the gap in your smile. If you let it go, you run the risk of your healthy teeth shifting and our bite changing, which can lead to losing more teeth.
