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 talk about the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of 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 gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 typically requires 2 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 extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate 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 brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed 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 specific 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 very important 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, creating a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
