A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will go over the 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 due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
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 two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area produced 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 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 exact science. The materials used may 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, creating an entire 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 issues 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 major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
