A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of 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 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 durable and will last many years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting 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 generally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions 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 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 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 soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, producing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use 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 problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
