A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 removing a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a appropriate 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 area developed 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 exact science. The materials used might 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple 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 worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to problems with the whole 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 severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
