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 talk about the very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 normally requires 2 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 highly precise 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 till your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your 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 specific science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice 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 a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
