A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your specific 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 type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge usually 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 produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks till your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why You Should 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 precise 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 very important 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, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems 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 becomes a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
