A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will talk about 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 due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering 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 typically requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced 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 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 exact 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 essential 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, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin 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 ends up being a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
