A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting 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 removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally needs 2 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 to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper 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 created 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 may 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 essential 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 move inward, creating an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
