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 talk about the best options for your specific 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 consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area 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 usually needs 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 extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help 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 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 exact science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to move inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
