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 talk about the very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 generally needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular 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 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 precise 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 essential 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, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
