A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over the very 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 due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- 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 normally needs 2 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 highly precise 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 a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why 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 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, creating a whole 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 ultimately lead to problems 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 major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
