A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain 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 two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 usually needs 2 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 extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfy 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 new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 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 specific science. The materials used may 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
