A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge usually requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
