A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with appropriate home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 typically needs two 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks till your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area created 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 specific science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, creating a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
