A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space 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 normal wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 needs 2 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 accurate 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 used for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine 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 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 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 essential 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, developing a whole domino effect 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 eventually lead to issues 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 ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
