A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually 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 includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached 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 years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating 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 fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks till your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully 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 routine 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 created 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 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 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
