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 go over the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- 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 normally 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 extremely 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 multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid 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 specific science. The materials used might 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to problems 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 ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
