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 discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two 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 one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge normally needs 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 highly 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 numerous weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy 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 brand-new permanent bridge.
Why 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 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 choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is very important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, creating an entire domino effect 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 response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems 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 becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
