A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind 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 developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with appropriate home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
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 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 removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate 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 area produced 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 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 option 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually 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 severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
