A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss 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 since 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 space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with correct home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly 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 generally requires 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 extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed 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 exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to shift inward, producing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
