A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over 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 because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly 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 typically requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion 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 produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper 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 produced 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to move inward, developing an entire domino effect 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 becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
