A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will talk about the very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting 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 2 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 to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.
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 instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular 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 created by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, 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 upon 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 start to move inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
