A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because 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 created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might have 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 typically requires two 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why 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 precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to shift inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the whole 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 major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
