A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge normally requires 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 extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine 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 area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like 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 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to shift inward, developing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems 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.
