A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 generally needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks up until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space created 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 specific science. The materials used might 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 soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, creating 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 response to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
