A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will discuss 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 due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting 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 removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate 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 used for a number of weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 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 may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary 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, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
