A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from 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 two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. It is formed to resemble the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, 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 may 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
