A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made from 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 2 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 extremely durable and will last years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 typically needs 2 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 to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second 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. Proper brushing, flossing and routine 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 resemble 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, developing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
