A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- 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 normally needs two 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 highly 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 multiple weeks till your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like 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 on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, producing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire 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 increasing as the neglect continues.
