A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from 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 two 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 highly resilient and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they might 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 include?
- 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 typically needs 2 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 precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions 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 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 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 necessary 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 move inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize 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 result in issues 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 serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
