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 discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type 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 one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with proper home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge typically needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct 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 brand-new permanent bridge.
Why 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 precise science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, producing an entire domino effect 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 deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
