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 talk about the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made from 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 artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge usually requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely precise 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 worn for a number of weeks until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help 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 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 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, producing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
