A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 normally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions 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 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 may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, producing 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 eventually result in issues 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 major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
