A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 typically 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 laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area created 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 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 precise science. The materials used might 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
