A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your particular 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 durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear 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 option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, creating 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 reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately 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 severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
