A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
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 usually 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 extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space created 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 specific science. The materials used might 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems with the entire 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.
