A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over 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 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 artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years with proper home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 usually requires two 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 out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like 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 might 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 necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, 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 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 severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
