A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 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 resilient and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple 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 removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge typically requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate 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 worn for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine 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 produced 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems 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 serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
