A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will talk about 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 consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with proper home care; however, they might have 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 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 eliminating a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, 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 brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to shift inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the entire 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 major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
