A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 2 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 precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 specific science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, creating a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
