A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 generally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating 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 fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct 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 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply 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.
